Re: strange SSH behavior
Hi all, I have been having the same problem with SSH also. I thought that
since I have been experimenting with my kernel, that I caused it my self.
Good thing I didn't. Anyways, here is what I did to fix my problem, but it
comes back everytime I reboot my obsd box. I can't figure out how to add
the line at boot time, but this will work.
In resolv.conf, after "search domain.name.blah" I added "lookup file" AND
changed the line in sshd_config from "ReverseMappingCheck yes" although it
was commented out, to "no" and now, what bam thank you ma'am, as soon as I
enter my password, I'm dropped to my shell. Now if someone could explain as
to why this happened all of a sudden, to more than just one person, would be
great. Perhaps is there a patch to come to fix this?
Hope this helps to delete any headaches that you people are having.
