comment updates in amazon-ec2 ubuntu 10.04 server
I think this answer is moving in the right direction for 14.04. On my own server (Ubuntu Server in a virtual machine), the motd changed after sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. In my case, that required a server restart, so I don't know whether the change to motd was little bit of a coincidence. I did not have to edit any of the files in /etc/pam.d, but I think I'd have first tried editing /etc/pam.d/login. That files has the same motd lines as sshd.

comment ssh tunnel refusing connections with “channel 2: open failed”
Actually, the important point was replacing "localhost" with "127.0.0.1". The additional "-v" arguments might have been helpful, but they weren't what I was aiming at. Thanks.

Ah. Well then, I won't bother to write up my comment as an answer. (Look into whether ssh prefers ipv6 addresses on your system.)

You can use -v up to three times to increase verbosity. So you might look at the output of ssh -L 7000... -N -v -v (two v's) or ssh -L 7000... -N -v -v -v.

For troubleshooting, try $ ssh -L 7000:127.0.0.1:7000 user@host -N -v -v. (You can use "-v" up to 3 times to increase verbosity.) Also, is it possible that ssh was recently updated?
