I'm a mosh maintainer. mosh 1.2.5 (from ports) and mosh master (just last night tagged as 1.2.6, alas) work fine for me on my two 11.0-BETA4 systems, one local and one remote. > This isn't the DSA change that's been discussed elsewhere: I can SSH from my > laptop to the host without problem.

Do you know if the message is getting out of mosh-server? into sshd? Do you know if mosh-server is actually running? (It will log utmp entries on startup.) Mosh's debugging/logging isn't very good, but 'mosh-server new -v 2> logfile' does produce some useful info (mostly logging of network traffic). > 2) it's racy because I can get it from "always fails" to "sometimes works".

Common suspects include issues with shell login/invocation of mosh (are you making sure it's reachable in /usr/local/bin with $PATH or '--server=/usr/local/bin/mosh'? are your login shell and its login scripts unusual?) On Linux we've had issues with ecryptfs and systemd breaking mosh-server when the ssh session ends, but I don't think that applies here. regards, --jh _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
