AW: AW: SSH did not work on every IP on debian x64


wow, we have found out a fact that we wouldnt believe in.

This IP wasnt in usage for more than 1 year. So there shall be no reason to think that anybody is still interested in this IP.
But the netstat shows up a very unbelievable thing.

netstat -n | grep -c :22
-> 475

so the server has nearly 500 open SSH connections. WTF...
seems to be that there is a bot net that bruteforces the IP since over one year and didnt recognize that it is unavailable most the time.

Thank for you very nice help. I appreciate that :)
this result was extremly unexpected, because it worked on a CentOS 5.5 Installation, so maybe on CentOS the sshd have more available slots? 

kind regards
Robert Menger

Hi Robert,

How have you configured sshd? Bind and Listen config in sshd_config?

could you please provide a
	netstat -anp 
with and without sshd running on the 'broken' IP/port combination

could you please provide a
	ifconfig -a

Have you had a look at /var/log - are there any error entries?

have you tried connecting from the local machine to itself on that port - does that work?

What is in /etc/hosts ?

have you tried looking at a tcpdump of packets coming in and out of your interface on the sshd server?
