Full Version: SSH connection refused: Frodo XBMCBuntu

Hi all,

I'm trying to log in to my newly installed Frodo XBMCBuntu box, but it's not playing ball.

I can ping its IP address from a Terminal on my Mac laptop and get a perfect response.

Historically - with everything from Eden to a Frodo beta Openelec - I've always typed in 'ssh [email protected]' and then it's prompted me for my user password. That's normal, right?

However, now it doesn't even do that. I simply get 'Connection closed by IP.ADDRESS.IN.HERE' and returned to the prompt.

Am I missing something obvious? Is there a simple reason why it would be doing this? It's got me dumbfounded; I'm used to screwing up the install itself, but I've never had it refuse to even allow me to ssh in before!

Hope someone has an idea...

Discy
Do an 'ssh -v [email protected]' and check if the debug output, may it sheds some light. What I usually get after a fresh install on an existing machine is that my ssh-client believes some spoofing goes on because the host key has changed and refuses to connect. Are you sure htat the Frodo-box closes the connection, and not your client?
Try doing:
ssh -l USERNAME IPADDRESS

It should just ask for your password
Hi. I had exactly this problem. The encryption keys were corrupt. Confused
Solution:
Code:
# rm /etc/ssh/ssh_host_*
# dpkg-reconfigure openssh-server
After telling me.
Bye!

PD: Sorry, my english is very poor...
Try deleting known hosts file on the machine you are typing the ssh command into. Works for me when I have this issue.

Code:
rm ~/.ssh/known_hosts
