User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.1; Linux)

Description of problem:
When I try to login on my machine using ssh, I get the following message: Connection to <hostname> closed by remote host.
When I check the log file /var/log/messages I see:
Nov 26 13:39:36 calvin sshd(pam_unix)[13730]: session opened for user rhdv by (uid=500)
No help there, not in /var/log/secure:
Nov 26 13:39:35 calvin sshd[13726]: Accepted password for rhdv from 194.178.210.52 port 46328 ssh2
Nov 26 13:39:36 calvin sshd[13730]: fatal: PAM session setup failed[6]: Permission denied
Some searching on the web revealed a possible connection with the pam_limits module.
I renamed the file /etc/security/limits.conf to limits.conf- and I can login again.
I do get messages about the missing limits.conf file in /var/log/messages though.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
openssh-server-3.6.1p2-19

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. login to your machine via ssh as a normal user (not root)


Actual Results:  Failed to login.

Expected Results:  Prompt from other machine.

This should be fixed in Fedora Core 3.
