Hello at FreeBSD list.

I have installed FreeBSD 5.3, have not upgraded to STABLE yet.  During the
installation I created a user account that is in the "wheel" group.  After
the installation, logged in as that user at console with no problems.  But
can not login using putty from my computer via ssh.  Then enabled telnet in
inetd.conf and could telnet just fine.

I also noticed that I CAN ssh as that user from one of other servers
(FreeBSD 5.1).

Please help, I am not sure where to look.

Thank you for your help in advance.


What version of PuTTY are you using?
Pre (Version 0.56) has known problems with ssh2, try updating your version
of PuTTY.

Best, Jon
