Posted by mop [send private reply] at October 29, 2002, 01:31:51 PM I've been sshing into my computer at home from the public library's computers for the last week or so (library across street from school). Now though, I get the error:
Error connecting to b3ghblahblahblah.bc.hsia.telus.net, reason:
-> security.Couldn't connect to 'b3blahblah.bc.hsia.telus.net' with oriom 'ait.web.psi.ch'.
ait.web.psi.ch is the website where I get the ssh applet from. This is a different applet then the one I used before because the one I used before has decided not to exist anymore. I was led to beleive that this was a local java security problem, but at home I tried "ssh localhost" and it didn't like me then either (the error I can post later if you want).

Posted by buzgub [send private reply] at October 30, 2002, 05:59:31 AM I suspect the error given when you do "ssh localhost" is more useful in terms of diagnostics; there's rather less to go wrong in that situation.
Vladimir, your post makes no sense. The issue has nothing to do with Putty; Putty talks a number of different protocols. However, we're talking about dedicated ssh clients. You don't get the problem you seem to be talking about with a dedicated ssh client.
Posted by vladimir_l [send private reply] at October 30, 2002, 06:04:49 AM Aghhh a simple dedicated ssh1/2 client you mean a UNIX one , i know , sorry ... well authentication is an issue with SSH is it not ?
Posted by mop [send private reply] at October 30, 2002, 09:06:52 AM I use the java applet ssh clients, they work like a charm but they all get that error now.
Posted by vladimir_l [send private reply] at October 30, 2002, 09:28:12 AM Dude , your problem is most probably a firewall , my experience of using library ssh java clients shows that as java is actually running on your computer ( the library one ) the port in blocked. Try some URL such as gopher:// , because firewalls usually block them too ... hope this was of help !
