ssh problem

Hi All,

I have hp servers(rx2660) both are running hpux 11.23 and having ssh version as below

OpenSSH_4.5p1+sftpfilecontrol-v1.1-hpn12v14, OpenSSL 0.9.7l 28 Sep 2006
HP-UX Secure Shell-A.04.50.021, HP-UX Secure Shell version

The issue is for the account X ssh login is working fine from host A to B but not B to A
what happens is that the connection for the account is being accepted and then the connection gets closed by the remote host with the below error -pls advice if you have seen this before.
thanks

debug1: Transferred: stdin 0, stdout 0, stderr 81 bytes in 0.0 seconds
debug1: Bytes per second: stdin 0.0, stdout 0.0, stderr 2582.8
debug1: Exit status -1

Re: ssh problem

This is not an error message: it's a notification about the quantities of transferred data and transfer rates. Stdin and stdout are at 0 but stderr has 81 bytes transferred: that would indicate the remote end emitted *some* error message, but for some reason it is not visible. Perhaps the error was overwritten on the screen by the debug output?

If connection from B to A fails, look into the system log (/var/adm/syslog/syslog.log) of node A for more clues. Perhaps there is a clearer error message?

Re: ssh problem

As first step I would take a look at the /etc/opt/sshd_config file on server A, maybe the user was denied there.

How user X authenticates himself on the servers? If it is done with ssh keys, check permissions of the keys, .ssh folder, etc...
Also check the authorized_keys file, one can set there many things like the allowed hosts and users, or the allowed command.

A full ssh -vv output would be also helpful to debug your issue...

Re: ssh problem

Is your system A experiencing memory/cpu problems? Check your system memory/cpu usage in case you are running out of resources.

Re: ssh problem

just another idea: does it work for other users? if another users also cannot log in, maybe you should look at /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny files. For more info on that look here:

Re: ssh problem

on what port the sshd daemon listens? it seems that at port 88888 listens nothing on the ssh server. do a "netstat -an | grep 88888" on the server to see if there is any listening daemon on that port at all.

Not the latest version (but that's probably
not the big problem here).

It might help to see _all_ the debug output,
not only the last few lines. And the actual
command you're using.

Well, is it???

If one user has the problem, and other users
do not, then I'd look for the cause in the
environment of the user who has the problem:
SSH configuration files, shell start-up files
(~/.profile, ...), and so on.
