RE: Telnet and SSH login problems with Red Hat Enterprise ES4



Hello

I found out what was causing the the problem.    I am a bit embarrassed to say but it was a password issue.   The password was too short.  I did notsuspect this was the issue at first because we were also connecting the users using samba and the passwords worked with samba.  

Sorry about that and thanks for taking the time to help.

Regards,

havent used telnet in years, (read about the security issues in this
matter) so cant help you.

as for ssh

do the users have /home/~ dirs
are you authenticating via passwd or keys only ?
can you post your sshd_config file ?
