dropbear scp server rejecting client with "Name or service not known"
2012-04-06 22:49:49 GMT
All, I've moved from version 0.50 to 0.55 and find that I can login just fine using openssh client ssh and dropbear 0.55 server, but when using openssh client scp to the same dropbear server the command fails with: > $ scp Makefile tsct: > toor <at> tsct's password: > WARNING: Ignoring unknown argument '--' > scp: exited: Error resolving: Name or service not known I've looked for options for reverse DNS lookup auth checks etc. The server host has an /etc/hosts entry for the client machine's IP, but looks to me like dropbear scp server is still unhappy. Anyone know why 'ssh' works just fine, but 'scp' does not? I'm using the multidropbear binary, with links in the usual places, eg /usr/bin/rcp etc. I can see using strace that the dropbear server is exec'ing (dropbear) rcp. It looks like it does a DNS (NSS?) lookup before failing. Does 0.55 have some new authentication logic that is just for scp? Thanks, -Ian
