hello forum,
i try to connect via ssh from to
tests i did:
- ping to works
- nmap to shows an open ssh-port
- sshd_config on has same auth-methods configured
as ssh_config on
- root login is permitted

here is a debug-output from the command: ssh -v root@
root@calisto:~/.ssh# ssh -v shaper@
OpenSSH_3.4p1 Debian 1:3.4p1-1.woody.3, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL

Connection closed by
debug1: Calling cleanup 0x8063aac(0x0)

the other way works. means:
ssh root@ from works
ssh root@ from does not work

don't know, what i did wrong.
do anyone have any ideas?

best regards, markus muessig

It looks like the server is crashing part-way through processing the
connection.  You'll need to run the server in debug mode to find out
why (see for
directions on how to do that).

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
