Description Jay Berkenbilt 2001-02-06 14:02:53 EST
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 openssh@openssh.com.
Comment 1 Jay Berkenbilt 2001-02-06 14:11:54 EST
I got the following reply to my openssh@openssh.com bug report from Markus
Friedl <Markus.Friedl@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>:

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 <jhuuskon@messi.uku.fi>.  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.
Comment 3 Jay Berkenbilt 2001-02-24 01:02:11 EST
I've been running openssh 2.5.1p1 for several days now.  This and other problems
are fixed.
Comment 4 Pekka Savola 2001-02-24 03:08:02 EST
2.5.1p1 is (will be) in rawhide.
