Re: Can't Remote Log In



Look into /var/log/messages, /var/log/secure for hints. It could be anything under
the sun that affects remote connection as well but not necessarily related to ssh.

I committed a sin.  I want to test FC5 and installed it on a remote
server (I was local at the time), tested it and then departed.  Not I
can not log onto the server using ssh or vnc.

Using vnc, I get past the vnc password but the screensaver password
(ther user password) simply hangs.  With ssh, after a long wait I do get
the password prompt, but no response to the password.

[xxxxx svr2 ~]$ ssh 192.168.15.39
xxxxx 192 168 15 39's password:
Connection closed by 192.168.15.39

I had a local guy reboot the server and everything worked, allowed me
run yum -y update.  After a few hours, I could not log in again.

This is a x86_64 system with dual opterons.  Been running for over a
year with RHEL.

Any ideas what the problem is before I call and have it rebooted again?
