Hi all,


I noticed that openssh5.5 finally revised this bug, pls check the bugzilla


but when i test it both on linux and hp-ux, it will still fails:

In hp-ux, server side:

root at sshia2# /opt/ssh/sbin/sshd -p 1234 -D -h ssh_host_dsa_key -ddd


debug3: send_rexec_state: entering fd = 9 config len 322
debug3: ssh_msg_send: type 0
debug3: send_rexec_state: done
debug1: rexec start in 6 out 6 newsock 6 pipe -1 sock 9


client side:

$ ssh sshia2 -p 1234 -vvv
OpenSSH_5.5p1+sftpfilecontrol-v1.3-hpn13v7, OpenSSL 0.9.8n 24 Mar 2010
HP-UX Secure Shell-A.05.50.002.LdapTest, HP-UX Secure Shell version
debug1: Reading configuration data /opt/ssh/etc/ssh_config
debug3: RNG is ready, skipping seeding
debug2: ssh_connect: needpriv 0
debug1: Connecting to sshia2 [fe80::217:8ff:fe7c:d91c] port 1234.
debug1: Connection established.
debug1: identity file /home/user1/.ssh/id_rsa type -1
debug1: identity file /home/user1/.ssh/id_rsa-cert type -1
debug1: identity file /home/user1/.ssh/id_dsa type -1
debug1: identity file /home/user1/.ssh/id_dsa-cert type -1
ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host

Do somebody know this reason?


Best Regards
