Strange entries in the windows event log from sshd


when i start the SIM (HP SIM 5.2 SP2 with Hotfix) i receive the following entries in the event log:

1. sshd : PID 4560 : Did not receive identification string from

2. sshd : PID 6192 : Illegal user root from

3. sshd : PID 6192 : input_userauth_request: illegal user root

4. sshd : PID 6192 : Failed none for illegal user root from port 1531 ssh2

5. sshd : PID 6192 : Received disconnect from : 11: The user disconnected the application

This is a windows machine so there is no user named root. Can this be ignored or is there a problem which has to be solved?

TIA, Peter
