#642 Just hangs and does nothing

Jamie Cameron

Just wondering if there is a fix for the ssh/telnet
login applet?
I haven't been able to use it for quite a while now .
The ssh window comes up but just hangs there...I don't
get a console prompt. Ive tried it with a couple
different browsers. Netscape and Explorer....neither

    I don't think there is anything wrong with the applet, as I
    have used
    it in SSH mode with no problems on many different browsers.
    Does it
    work in telnet mode? Also, is there maybe a firewall
    blocking your
    SSH login from the system you are running the web browser on?

    I'm using Debian Woody, Webmin 1.0. I've used netscape 6.2,
    explorer, AOL, Mozilla, and konqueror. It does the same
    thing on all of them. After I login all I get is a blinking
    curser..nothing else.
    Also i can' make changes to the module config. Who should
    webmin be running as?

    I have the same issue. Redhat 8. Shows the SSH header
    after the login window and just freezes. Tried different
    security settings. Set IE 6 to consider it a trusted site and I
    see no Java restrictions. No firewall probem as the same
    machine can use Putty to connect to the SSH just fine.

    Argh...the 'edit' 'copy' feature in the terminal window
    doesn't appear to work. But I guess that's another issue...

    Tried Netscape 4.7 and same results:

    (Basically a frozen cursor and the SSH identifier. Can't free
    it up and have to disconnect.) Putty still connects fine
    from the same box.

    Actually I think i figured it out. It doesn't seem to like
    SSH2. I reconfigured SSHD to accept SSH1 connections and
    made an SSH1 key and it works fine now.

    Thanks for the help

    Upgraded server from RH7 to RH8 and upgraded webmin/usermin
    at same time and now ssh app fails, just cursor, no login
    prompt. In server logs I get:
    sshd[2192]: Did not receive identification string from

    sshd is set for both ssh1 and ssh2, putty works fine.

    I have this problem too...

    The WebMin-Machine is a SuSe 8.1 machine.
    I've tested it with 3 different computers and always the same

    I made a test with the java-console open and got a
    OutOfMemoryException (or something equal)
    , but I think this isn't an issue with the hardware of the client-
    machine (one of the test-machines has got 1GB of RAM).

    Turns out you need to make sure you have ssh1 enabled with
    ssh. Default is ssh2

    Protocol 1,2
    # HostKeys for protocol version 2
    HostKey /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key
    HostKey /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key

    HostKey /etc/ssh/ssh_host_key
