ssh wont accept connections?
Im using Red Hat 9 and i want to set up ssh. So i looked it up on the Red Hat website and entered the following command(after checking the config file, witch looked OK(just default)):
it gives back :
/sbin/service sshd start
after that i checked the service file in /etc/service to see if the port was open, it was. now i tried connecting to it with another computer with PUTTY, but it just times out. Connecting to localhost on port 22 with the SSH command gave back the following:
Starting sshd: [ OK ]
i typed yes and after that i could connect, but it said:
The authenticity of host '127.0.0.1 (127.0.0.1)' can't be established. RSA key fingerprint **.**.**(etc).
Are you sure you want to continue connecting(yes/no)?
when i connected a second time the warning was gone(becouse its added temporary i guess).
Warning, permantly added '127.0.0.1' (RSA) to the list of known hosts.
Does anyone know how to fix this problem?
