Dependent on version and/or sshd_config you may need an empty directory belonging to root: /var/empty and a pseudo user: sshd:*:22:22::0:0:Secure Shell Daemon:/var/empty:/sbin/nologin Some how I was missing this user on one machine and found sshd would exit rather promptly until I installed this user. Of course you might have an entirely different problem ;) Malcolm Kay _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
