Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 466818
HP ProCurve switches, APC master switches drop connection after login
Last modified: 2008-11-06 21:51:41 EST
Description of problem:
After a recent upgrade I am no longer able to log in to the embedded devices like HP ProCurve ethernet switches or APC master switches - the remote device just closes the connection after receiving the password.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install the above version of openssh
2. try to log in to the remote device using password
connection is closed by the remote side. APC master switches do not
say anything, with HP ProCurve ssh says the following:
Received disconnect from XXX: 2: protocol error: rcvd type 80
Command-line prompt on HP ProCurve (tested 2650, 2848, 4300), menu screen on
APC (tested version 7920).
Downgrading to 5.0p1-1.fc9 fixes the problem. The problem happens at least on i386 and x86_64.
I will attach the two ssh -v sessions (one with 5.0p1-1.fc9, the other one with 5.1p1-2.fc9).
Created attachment 320228 [details]
ssh -v with 5.0p1 and 5.1p1 to the APC master switch.
Do you see anything suspicious in ssh -vvv session with the 5.1p1?
Created attachment 320323 [details]
ssh -vvv to the APC master switch (5.0p1)
Created attachment 320325 [details]
ssh -vvv to the APC master switch (5.1p1)
OK, here you are. Running diff -u on the above two files did not show anything I can make sense of :-)
[Meta: is it just me, or is Bugzilla these days _awfully_ slow? Just opening the bug page took about half a minute here, the same for adding attachments and every other page]
openssh-5.1p1-3.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9.
Works for me (tested x86_64 arch only, against both HP and APC boxes). Thanks for solving the problem this fast!
[Meta from the comment #4 stil holds, bugzilla is still very slow here]
Upstream solved it just today, not me :)
openssh-5.1p1-3.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
