Openssh 4.4p1 and 4.5p1
SCO Openserver 6 w/mp1, mp2
While installing v4.5p1, I noticed this sshd syslog error which began
appearing when I upgraded from v4.3p2 to v4.4p1:
Sep 1 17:54:41 tenzing sshd: error: Bind to port 22 on :: failed: \
Network is unreachable.
sshd -d reports:
debug1: Bind to port 22 on ::.
Bind to port 22 on :: failed: Network is unreachable.
debug1: Bind to port 22 on 0.0.0.0.
Server listening on 0.0.0.0 port 22.
This comes from server_listen() in sshd.c (introduced in v4.4p1) and is
apparently due to getnameinfo() not returning a valid numeric host
Should I be concerned? sshd seems to be functioning OK.
FTR, this problem does not occur on SCO Openserver 5.0.7.
Feature request: Could the sshd version number be added to its startup
