[vox-tech] ssh help needed



hi all,

i'm trying to connect to a friend's on-campus debian system.   here are the
error messages that i'm getting from various types of machines:


from a debian testing linux box off-campus:
   ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host

from a debian testing linux box on-campus:
   ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host

from a SunOS/sparc system on-campus:
   Disconnected; connection lost (Connection closed by remote host.).


here's debug output:

   debug1: read PEM private key done: type DSA
   debug1: read PEM private key done: type RSA
   debug1: identity file /home/p/.ssh/identity type -1
   debug1: identity file /home/p/.ssh/id_rsa type -1
   debug1: identity file /home/p/.ssh/id_dsa type -1
   ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host
   debug1: Calling cleanup 0x8062e7c(0x0)


i've telneted to port 22, and here's where the trouble begins:

   satan# telnet (problematic machine) 22
   Trying (problematic machine)...
   Connected to (problematic machine).
   Escape character is '^]'.
   Connection closed by foreign host.

compare this with:

   satan# telnet belial 22
   Trying 169.237.43.86...
   Connected to belial.ucdavis.edu.
   Escape character is '^]'.
   SSH-1.99-OpenSSH_2.9p2

i know that ssh can be built to use tcpwrappers, but suppose /etc/hosts.deny
isn't the problem.  also, suppose sshd is running.

any guesses as to what could be causing this?

pete
