when running an xinetd session, I get this error:
ssh_exchange_identification: Connection reset by peer
Which translates to this in the logs:
Jun 8 21:02:05 rustyp xinetd: FAIL: ssh address from=<no
Jun 8 21:02:05 rustyp xinetd: START: ssh pid=3263 from=<no
Jun 8 21:02:05 rustyp xinetd: Deactivating service ssh due to
excessive incoming connections. Restarting in 30 seconds.
Jun 8 21:02:05 rustyp xinetd: FAIL: ssh connections per second
(The top two lines are actually done about 30 times, as sshd constantly
-ssh works both locally and remotely when running as its own server
-xinetd+ssh works locally, though not remotely
xinetd was compiled with tcp wrapper support
ssh was compiled with tcp wrapper support, kerberos, pam, ldap, and
The connection is not via ipv6, but my system does support ipv6
This is the xinetd config for ssh:
port = 22
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/sshd
server_args = -i
type = UNLISTED
wait = yes
instances = 10
Anyone have any clue why xinetd is not passing ip address information
to ssh correctly? Is there some magic needed to get it to work in a
mixed ipv6/ipv4 system?
