Description Matthew Schick 2003-09-17 09:44:32 UTC
The 3.7 versions of Openssh will refuse to authenticate via password (didn't try
keys) for the and Putty clients IF the server is using ldap
authentication.  I used the 3.6.1_p2-r3 ebuild and applied the patch from the
openssh site and all is well.

I'll be submitting the bug to the openssh bugzilla as soon as I get a password...

Reproducible: Always

DEBUG3 output

This is a dump from my logs of the failed login attempt from windows clients...
Comment 2 Andrea Barisani (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-09-17 23:55:39 UTC
New OpenSSH version now is also incompatible when using PAM and 
PasswordAuthentication off with old ssh UNIX clients and older version of putty.

Note that when using PAM now setting PasswordAuthentication off is required, otherwise users can bypass PAM authentication...

Comment 3 Daniel Ahlberg (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-09-18 04:28:55 UTC discuss this issue. Does it 
work if you upgrade the client? 
Comment 4 Matthew Schick 2003-09-18 06:24:11 UTC
Nope...  same problem occurs with the latest putty and clients...  I haven't had any problems with the windows clients connecting to a server using the  "normal" passwd/shadow auth, which I find to be quite odd.

This is out of my hand. Closing becuse upstream closed bug.
