SSH Frequently Asked Questions
How do I debug SSH problems?
When asking for help, e.g. in
be sure to include enough information to allow people to help you:
- operating systems on the client and server hosts, and their versions
- SSH software on the client and server hosts, and their versions
- Exactly what you are trying to accomplish, and exact error messages
you are getting, preferably quoted program output. Just saying, "I got an
error!" is entirely useless.
- Include all the output from the debugging steps given above, or as
many as you can perform in your situation.
