Subject:   Replace worksation, now can't ssh to older machine
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
My trusty lon suffering FreeBSD workstation at work died (hardware), and I
am in the process of replacig it.

The current iss I have is that I have several older HP-UX achines that I
need to be able to ssh to. I can't remeber exactly how I set these machines
up (it was years agao), but they seem to have some restrictions as to what
machines can ssh to them. I can't sem to get the new FreeBSD machine to be
accepted by them. The are running:

OpenSSH_2.5.1p1, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x0090600f

I added the and lines to the ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
file on one of the HP-UX machines, but when Itry to conect with verbose
mode urned on, I get:

ssh -v phse6
