SSHd with FreeBSD 5.3

General Information

I ran FreeBSD 5.2 for a long time with the default SSHd and then decided to upgrade to 5.3-STABLE. adidas pas cher timberland roll top pas cher ugg classic ugg bottes bottes ugg australia pas cher asics duomax I normally use SecureCRT as my SSH client and I like password authentication. new balance femme ugg homme 2017 asics nike cortez timberland soldes ugg australia After I upgraded to 5.3, timberland discount ugg bailey bow I could no longer logon using password authentication and I had to switch to keyboard interactive. chaussure tn pour homme ffxiv gil adidas zx flux homme basket nike air jordan 1 soldes nike air max 2014 This disallowed me from logging in with sftp from remote locations which really bummed me out. new balance 574 new balance 574 nike air huarache timberland soldes nike air max thea ugg men Here is the fix I found.

Note: This fix only affects people running FreeBSD 5.3 with the default SSHd — not OpenSSHd.


  1. Local root access on the box or be able to su to root.
  2. A SSH client that supports ANSI colors such as puTTy or SecureCRT (if you aren’t on the box).


The steps are really simple and I felt silly for not thinking of it sooner.

 # echo "PasswordAuthentication=yes" >> /etc/ssh/sshd_config 

Now, bottes ugg australia pas cher Soldes 2017 Asics just restart sshd.

 # /etc/rc.d/sshd reload 

There you go.
