ssh as root
I'm curious if this is a bug or a config option or am i smoking crack. I
have 2 identical (more or less) potato systems, and wanted to scp a tar
file to the other machine. the command was:
# scp /tmp/filename.tar admin@remote_host:/tmp
ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host
when i exit back out of the su, it connects fine. since i am not "logging
in" as root i don't understand why it would(if it is) drop the
connection. i checked the sshd_config and it looked ok ..i don't have
identd running on either host, maybe SSH is telling the remote system what
user i am? somehow i would think that would be bad if it was.
or maybe my crackpipe needs cleaning ..
