I have had this problem for a month now...have tried several things
and still no luck...I really need some advice please!!!
Here is the situation:
1 - freebsd 6.1-RELEASE-p6 running sshd in standard config. my
server is server1.domain.com. hosts.allow has not been touched nor
has just about anything else...this is a standard install.
I have tried sshd_config -> UseDNS yes and no to same effect, but
otherwise its a default sshd_config.
2 - I _can_ connect to this server from a Windows XP machine with
PuTTY (this client as all others I have tried are on separate
networks from server1.
3 - I _cannot_ connect to server1 from OS X mac.domain.com or another
freebsd 6.1 client server2.domain.com. These two clients are each on
different networks but I get the same error: Read from socket failed:
Connection reset by peer.
4 - My hosting provider has tried to help me debug this by connecting
to server1 from several different clients on different
networks...they have no problems from Linux and FreeBSD clients.
5 - Both OS X and other freebsd client (from item 3) have the same
domain root as server1...i.e. domain.com If this is the heart of
the problem I do not know what to do on server1 to tell it is ok to
accept these connections...if its a security protection, seems like a
useless one if sshd lets my unnamed DHCP assigned Windows XP client in.
