Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 26345
no authentication agent forwarding with protocol 2.0
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:59 EDT
In openssh 2.3.0p1, ssh protocol 2 using DSA does not do
authentication agent forwarding even though the manual page seems to
suggest that it does. Shamelessly ripping code (in ssh.c) from
ssh_connect and putting it into client_init didn't work, but I don't
know why because the code in client_init doesn't read responses.
Sorry -- no patch this time. I like the fact that RedHat 7.x
configures openssh to use the more secure 2.0 protocol by default, but
I'll sure miss authentication agent forwarding until this gets
I also reported this bug to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I got the following reply to my email@example.com bug report from Markus
the next release will have this feature.
Hopefully that release will be soon enough or a patch can be extracted that will
fix this for now....
This was merged to OpenSSH about 2.5 months ago (20001113) based on
the work by <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Also, at the same time, remote
port forwarding for SSHv2 was added.
There have been talks about OpenSSH 2.4.0 release, but no definite plans yet.
I've been running openssh 2.5.1p1 for several days now. This and other problems
2.5.1p1 is (will be) in rawhide.
