I had a FreeBSD 11.2 box running on VMWare with no problems. I
upgraded to 12 via freebsd-update. Done this plenty of times before.
Upgrade went okay, but after reboot I couldn't ssh out from the box.
ssh -vvv shows that everything goes okay until the very end:
debug1: Authentication succeeded (publickey).
Authenticated to example.org ([188.8.131.52]:22).
debug1: channel 0: new [client-session]
debug1: Requesting no-more-sessions at openssh.com
debug1: Entering interactive session.
debug1: pledge: network
debug1: client_input_global_request: rtype hostkeys-00 at openssh.com
Fssh_packet_write_wait: Connection to 184.108.40.206 port 22: Broken pipe
Tore my hair out trying to figure this out. A web search led me to
Add this to ~/.ssh/config:
This is apparently due to a VMWare networking bug.
Posting this in case anyone else had similar errors.
