I have been using Backuppc for a few years now. Recently I upgraded
my machine to newer, faster hardware. Hence, I have experience
exchanging ssh keys, etc.
It seems I have one client that refuses to connect via ssh. When I
exchanged keys and ran "ssh
-l root [clientip] whoami" the client properly
When I "sudo -u backuppc
/usr/share/backuppc/BackupPC_dump -v -f [clienthostname]"
I get 'dump failed:
Unable to read 4 bytes'.
I have checked versions of rsync, ssh and openssh-server on both the
backuppc machine and the client. They are the same on both (both
running Ubuntu 12.04LTS.)
I have tailed the clients auth.log file it shows "sshd: Connection closed by [backuppc-ip]
[preauth]" so, the backuppc machine is closing the
connection. (I might be tailing the wrong file, I am not sure.)
Why won't this client connect?
