After successfully using the ALFS on the LiveCD to install a LFS system,
i'm trying to install the SSH-Daemon - but I can't.
I have installed the OpenSSL-0.9.8 with:
Then I install OpenSSH-4.2p1 with:
useradd -g sshd sshd
LIBS="-ldl" ./configure --with-md5-passwords --sysconfdir=/etc/sshd
The installation goes fine, and I can start the sshd damon:
When trying to connect from another computer I get asked if I want to
add this host to the list of knows hosts. After answering yes the
connection is closed, instead of asking me for a password.
I have tried several different things to solve it.
Installing older version of OpenSSL-0.9.7g
Installing older version of OpenSSH-4.1p1
Enabled MD5 passwords in login.defs
Converted to shadow passwords (pwconv and grpconv)
Changed the root passwords so it would be MD5 encrypted.
Installed OpenSSH and SSHD user, acording to the BLFS description
If I install LFS manualy (Not using ALFS) I have no problem installing
and using the SSHD daemon.
