No SSH anymore??? Uhm what?

Fri May 15, 2015 4:36 am


since I logged out yesterday I get this message if I want to login via ssh:

Code: Select all

ssh -v pi@IPADD
OpenSSH_5.3p1 Debian-3ubuntu7.1, OpenSSL 0.9.8k 25 Mar 2009
debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config
debug1: Applying options for *
debug1: Connecting to IPADD [IPADD] port 22.
debug1: Connection established.
debug1: identity file /home/USER/.ssh/identity type -1
debug1: identity file /home/USER/.ssh/id_rsa type 1
debug1: Checking blacklist file /usr/share/ssh/blacklist.RSA-2048
debug1: Checking blacklist file /etc/ssh/blacklist.RSA-2048
debug1: identity file /home/USER/.ssh/id_dsa type -1
ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host
What does it mean? What I did: deleted all gpg(!) keys and imported another and trust this key. But what does this mean relating to SSH?

Thank you for advice...

In OpenSSH, ONLY the server itself can tell you why a connection is denied or closed. That information is never provided to the client. Log into your RasPi at the console and look in /var/log/secure for the reason it's disconnecting you. At first glance, it appears you're blacklisted.

Who setup your ssh?

It appears that you are using PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) in conjunction with your ssh security. You changed the keys so ssh is no longer going to validate you. You will need to update ssh. Maybe on each end.
