Threaded View
Hello All,

Here goes our problem,

OpenSSH version : 3.8.1 P1
Platform        : HP-UX 11.11 PA
Allowed Authentication : Public key & Password.

  Server runs with 'usePrivilegeseperation no'  option.

The problem here is when an user login thru password authentication
after when the public key authentication failed, lastb command reports
the failure of an user login but who had succesfully logged.

lastb results

root     ssh:notty    Fri Sep  3 10:01
root     ssh:notty    Fri Sep  3 10:01 ( wrong entries of user who had
succsfully logged)

Any idea to avoid this.

Thanks for help

Are you using PAM?  If so, try putting "PermitEmptyPasswords no" in
sshd_config and restarting sshd.

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