General :: SSH: Server Unexpected Closed Network Connection
Jul 4, 2011
In my case, it occurs intermittently when trying to connect using putty's command line client 'plink.exe' to a linux machine using ssh. For some testing purposes, a linux server is setup with 8K virtual ip addresses and the testing scripts will connect to these ip addresses through ssh using plink.exe. There will be concurrently 25 ssh sessions launched to the server. While it works for sometimes, it throws 'server unexpectedly closed network connection' error intermittently. If the same ip address is tried again manually, it works. While the ssh server is accepting connections, this error is thrown sometimes and unable to find out the reason from the logs. It is not that the ssh connection is completely blocked. It gives this error message while connecting to some of the virtual ip addresses but works some times.
The hosts.deny, sshd_config are tuned to allow the connections, allow more sessions etc.
I'm remotely connecting to SUSE 10 system using OpenSSH_4.2p1 from PUTTY. My problem is that my session to the server was getting disconnected after some time. when i'm giving "exit" command, it is giving the message "server unexpectedly closednetworkconnection".Also it is showing my last login wrongly. what went wrong from sshd side i dont know
I'm a frequent user of the shared connection feature of SSH. Usually i have two or three connections open at the same time through the connection sharing feature, but sometimes when i try to start another i get the message "Shared connection to <server< closed". All the connection that are established through the connection sharing feature are still active and not closed, but when i try to create a new one i get that message.. i've even got that message when i have only had two connections through the shared connection feature.
I've tried to search google but it doesnt seem like anyone else has had the same kind of problem, does someone know why i sometimes get this error ?
As the title implies, I'm having an issue with svn, whenever I try to make an svn action, I get: svn: Network connection closed unexpectedly
I've done some Google-fu on this, and the obvious culprits don't seem to be at work. Specifically, the svn server does not use a nonstandard port, and I'm not using Tortoise SVN or putty, just going directly from the command line. Additionally, I was able to use the server as recently as this morning and no coworkers are having problems.
I'm using Postgresql 8.4.2-2. I'm trying to remote into my server securely. I figure I could do so with ssh. Apparently I figured correctly, as per, [URL] and [URL] I setup the ssh tunnel. ssh -L 5432:serverip:5432 Then I setup pgadmin3 to connect as follows:
An error has occurred: Quote: An error has occurred: Error connecting to the server: server closed the connection unexpectedly This probably means the server terminated abnormally before or while processing the request.
I'm not sure what the problem is. I can connect with Code: psql from the cli after connecting to the terminal via ssh. So I know that I'm using the correct password.
setting up an SFTP server on debian, all the way down through step 3, though I did not "Match Group" I did Match User as I only need 1 user to have access to the SFTP server(did not continue on to step 4 and beyond as they did not apply to me) Im getting the error:
connection closed by server with exitcode 141
I get this when trying to log in via filezilla. I actually only got the 141 error on the first attempt, any attempts after that just says "could not connect to server". Username and password authentication goes through, so it is not a login info issue.Im running Debian squeeze, and that guide was for Lenny, that shouldnt matter, I dont think.
I have configured rssh 2.3 with openssh 5.8 on RHEL 5.6 64 bit to restrict the users to scp and sftp. When i try to sftp or scp it gives error connection closed. After long googling tried different solutions like add missing libraries, setuid to rssh_helper. I had full copy of /lib to /chroot/lib and /chroot/lib64 but no success. conf and log files are below for reference.
I am facing problem while connection to host (Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 5)) via putty.
when ever i try to connect host machine via putty/ssh, connection is established succussfully but just after few minutes it disconnectes . same is the problem if i connect using VNC. I did't made any configuration changes in recent past, earlier every thing was fine.
I am trying to Setup citrix ICA client 9 on Ubuntu 9.04 Server. I installed it very easily and I am not getting any lib error also. But when I try to connect to the citrix server, it fails with a pop up saying "Error in Network Connection Network or Dialup connection may be preventing ......" This is driving me crazy from 3 days. My project is to check the feasiblity of a Linux desktop
I'm using tigthvnc server on linux machine. Often my clients are closing their vncviewrs from close button ('X'), and not exiting gracefully their sessions from OS. How can I terminate the server when they do that?
I have a server program in ubuntu which i run using putty remotely. My problem is that when i closes my putty window, my server automatically closes and stop working. I want that once i start my server it remains on when i closed my putty window.
We have ubuntu server and bind9 installed and setup.When I issue rndc reload or /etc/init.d/bind9 reload I got this:rndc: connection to remote host closedThis may indicate that* the remote server is using an older version of the command protocol,* this host is not authorized to connect,* the clocks are not syncronized, or* the key is invalid.If I issue named-checkconf /etc/bind/named.conf I got this:/etc/bind/named.conf.local:165: unknown key 'rndc-key'I got the key files in the right location but I'm not sure if we even need to use them.
I can make a connection to the vpn server, the connection starts, but nothing happens! My IP address remains the same as previous! There is nothing added to my Knetworkmanager, I'm a beginner I should use a pcf file for my vpn connection. I use it properly, I'm sure because the connection starts and an icon is added to my panel and remains until I disconnect.
I checked it via ifconfig -a, the last part (which is for vpn) is:
I have a weird problem with ssh, I am trying to ssh to a solaris server (sparc) running solaris 10 from my Ubuntu box and as soon as it authenticates the password it closes the connection. The box is located on a internal network in a wiring closet with no ability for me to access console but i still have a working ssh session from 2 days ago with what i'm trying to comb through settings and trying to resolve the issue. It also has 2 NIC's and I cannot connect to the either ruling out hardware problem. I checked if there is a limit of the number of active connections and the was no limit. I was able to connect mitiple session till 2 days ago (at one point i had on my machine 8 active ssh sessions to the same server).
Here is the output of ssh -vvv: Code: $ ssh -vvv -l user1 10.100.xxxxx OpenSSH_5.5p1 Debian-4ubuntu4, OpenSSL 0.9.8o 01 Jun 2010 debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config debug1: Applying options for * debug2: ssh_connect: needpriv 0 ..... debug3: channel 0: close_fds r -1 w -1 e 6 Connection to 10.100.50.4 closed.

I have installed Fedora 13 and updated it. I simply cant use ssh to connect to this Fedora, not even locally. I have enabled port22 in firewall settings and nothing. Tried to disable firewall completely and nothing. I have disabled SELinux (not sure if it has something to do with this, but... ) and nothing. Entered "ALL: ALL" in /etc/hosts.allow and still nothing. Dont know what to do anymore.
Here is what happens when I try to ssh to this machine, even from it: [flibio@surf ~]$ ssh localhost warning: Need basic cursor movement capability, using vt100 flibio's password: Authentication successful. Disconnected; connection lost (Connection closed.). Connection to localhost closed. [flibio@surf ~]$
Looking into Services > sshd and it says "This service is dead." So I tried: [root@surf etc]# service sshd restart Stopping sshd: [FAILED] Starting sshd: : OpenSSH_5.4p1 on : FATAL: Creating listener failed: port 22 probably already in use! .....
And still I get disconnected whenever I try to ssh to this machine from anywhere. Services says that sshd is allways dead, even restarting it but I can only restart it by doing a pkill sshd before.
Saying that the problem is only with ssh would be wrong as I can't seem to telnet or ftp it either. But I can ping it fine.When I try to login to that VM through console, it won't even let me login. The screen would flash for a sec and the same login prompt would reappear. I am not sure what exactly happened as it was working fine before.
Linux printing appeared to be working fine up until yesterday. Today typing lpq gives the following: lpq Printer 'email@example.com' - cannot open connection - Connection timed out Make sure LPD server is running on the server
The /etc/cups/printers.conf file is properly set, the printers appear in localhost:631 and they are printing test pages. However, all command line print commands seem to be trying to print to firstname.lastname@example.org I don't know why printers.conf is being ignored and why and how email@example.com was added. Seems like it might have been auto-discovered?
# dit: firstname.lastname@example.org was mentioned in /usr/local/etc/lpd.conf I'm not sure why lpd.conf is being used instead of /etc/cups/printers.conf
I have recently installed fedora 14 and configured vpn to access my work network. I need to access some windows machines which although I can ping I cannot remote desktop into. When I go to Applications>Internet> Remote Desktop Viewer and put in the machine name (either just the machine name or the FQDN including the domain name) I get an error "Connection to <machinename> was closed".
i try to connect to a specific ip address with ssh i have installed the ssh server and client. i also try it by connecting with localhost without any problem. But i keep taking this message if to try to connect to the ip address. i checked my hosts.allow and hosts.deny files and all are commented in there (i think tha this should not be the problem).
I'm forwarding an application (HandBrakegui) over an ssh tunnel using X11 forwarding as follows
ssh -C -p PORTNUM user@host -X ghb
This all works fine and X11 loads and handbrake's X11 output to my local mac.The server is Ubuntu 10.4 and the client is Mac OS X.Is it possible for the X11 HandBrake Gui session to be kept alive once the SSH tunnel or the X11 window on the client (mac) has been closed? As I'm adding files to HandBrakes queue I want the programme to finish encoding them even if I turn off the client computer as the server is always on.
Several of our servers that do not have direct exposure to the Internet have the following entry appearing in their respective /var/log/secure files.Are these messages harmless? If so, is there any way or reason to suppress their appearing in the log files?
Firstly I am new to red5 and not very strong when it comes to linux. I have had installed red5 on my dedicated server and going by the http://myIP:5080/installer demos it is all working fine. My problem is I cannot get it to work with my software being flashchat. I am not sure if it comes from me using the incorrect RTMP url and if so after trying about 20 or more ways of typing it in I always get the same error message "Connection Failed' or "Connection Closed" not to sure what is meant by Closed as to whether it's working but can't get in or what ever. I am after someone who can get this to work for me please and I am willing to pay for that service once it is working.
I have a Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5721 network card on my server at work.Everything works fine for a few weeks, then randomly the network connection on the server will stop working. After it stops working, I will try to reconnect with the network manager, it shows a wired connection available, it shows the "connection in progress"animation, then the "connection disabled" icon.
I uninstalled the network manager and used manual configuration, but do you think the network manager was the issue? I can't have the server disconnecting randomly every few weeks with no way to know what the real problem is. Was there an issue with the network manager with 10.04?
