Hi,

Can anyone tell me what does the following line in the /var/log/secure file means.


[genoServer]$ tail -f /var/log/secure
Feb 7 13:30:02 genoServer sshd[7750]: Did not receive identification string from ::ffff:127.0.0.1


I'm sure google could tell you all kinds of answers here, however, I see this on machines with a network monitoring tool installed that is checking for sshd to be running. If you connect to port 22 via telnet (telnet localhost 22), and then disconnect, it will probably show you that message.
