Hello again, I mailed the list a few days about an
openssh problem, since then i still have not had any
luck with it. I will include the log's errror messages
this time incase somebody see's what i am doing wrong.
I have created a key using ssh-keygen and then copied
this to authorized_keys, i did ssh-keygen again on the
other computer that i want to ssh from, then i
appended its identity.pub to the authorized_keys file
on the computer i want to ssh to.
I dont know if that the fact that i am ssh'ing from a
machine with ssh2 on it and the machine i want to ssh
to is using openssh, this should not be causing the
Here are the error logs:
1. when i try to ssh remotely into the computer i get:
sshd Failed password for username from ipaddress
2. when i try to ssh from the same machine to itself i
sshd Accepted rsa for username from ipaddress
sshdCould not reverse map address ipaddress
sshdPAM rejected by account configuration User
account has expired
sshdFaking authloop for illegal user username
from ipaddress port 957
I have setup openssh before and did not have to do
anything special other than what i have done already,
this is why i am confused.
I also have a question, how are you allowed to ssh to
a box from say a ssh client on a windows machine when
the windows machine's identity.pub is not appended to
the hosts authorized_keys file ?
Ok thanks for all the help so far.
