Everyday I wake up and check the my servers are running smooth, I use my mac to connect to some ubuntu and some freebsd machines.
But today when I tried something strange happened:
$ ssh -v -p 41900 someserver.com OpenSSH_5.2p1, OpenSSL 0.9.8r 8 Feb 2011 debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh_config debug1: Connecting to someserver.com [126.96.36.199] port 41900. debug1: Connection established. debug1: identity file /Users/someuser/.ssh/identity type -1 debug1: identity file /Users/someuser/.ssh/id_rsa type -1 debug1: identity file /Users/someuser/.ssh/id_dsa type 2 debug1: Remote protocol version 2.0, remote software version OpenSSH_5.8p2_hpn13v11 FreeBSD-20110503 debug1: match: OpenSSH_5.8p2_hpn13v11 FreeBSD-20110503 pat OpenSSH* debug1: Enabling compatibility mode for protocol 2.0 debug1: Local version string SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_5.2 debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEXINIT sent debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEXINIT received debug1: kex: server->client aes128-ctr hmac-md5 none debug1: kex: client->server aes128-ctr hmac-md5 none debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_REQUEST(1024<1024<8192) sent debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_GROUP debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_INIT sent debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_REPLY debug1: Host '[someserver.com]:41900' is known and matches the RSA host key. debug1: Found key in /Users/someuser/.ssh/known_hosts:3 debug1: ssh_rsa_verify: signature correct debug1: SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS sent debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS debug1: SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS received debug1: SSH2_MSG_SERVICE_REQUEST sent debug1: SSH2_MSG_SERVICE_ACCEPT received debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,keyboard-interactive debug1: Next authentication method: publickey debug1: Offering public key: /Users/someuser/.ssh/id_dsa debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,keyboard-interactive debug1: Trying private key: /Users/someuser/.ssh/identity debug1: Trying private key: /Users/someuser/.ssh/id_rsa debug1: Next authentication method: keyboard-interactive Password: debug1: Authentication succeeded (keyboard-interactive). debug1: channel 0: new [client-session] debug1: Requesting email@example.com debug1: Entering interactive session.
Now the connection just hangs, nothing happenes -- until it timesout and shuts down after some minutes.
After having tried putting my laptop into a bag and going to another network, I have come to beleave that this is a network issue, and my instincts were confirmed when I found out that my ISP had gone bankrupt.
However, this raises a new question, becaurse I tried loggin onto another network using vpn, but the same issue accured, can anyone explain how a routing problem on one network can affect a vpn connection -- that is othervise running fine?
Can anyone tell me what happened to my ssh client? And perhaps even how I fix it?
