ssh server

Hello,
I have been trying to get ssh server running on my Itanium with no luck. I get the following error when I try to connect to localhost.

Re: ssh server

Eric,

Have you checked if you have an old style configuration file? The errors strongly suggest that SSH doesn't understand what's in the configuration file.

Try blowing away the existing configuration and starting again. If that fails, you should probably log a case with your local customer support centre.

Re: ssh server

John,
How do I check if the configuration file is old style? I don't have the release notes for this server since it is not really ours, simply a demo.

Re: ssh server

John,
Never mind! I blew away the old files and it works! Thanks!

I thought I did this about 10 times, I must not have!
