Re: [vox-tech] sshd issue

chris, 3 thoughts:

1. do you have a file /etc/pam.d/ssh?

2. are you trying to login as root?  try a different user.

3. look at /etc/ssh/sshd_config.

4. silly thought -- is your account name on the hpux the same as your
        account name on the linux machine?

do you have woody?  i can send you my config files if you're missing them.
