SSH2 connect: Error: disconnected: signature check faile 9 Years, 4 Months ago  
Hi,

I'm using Absolute telnet 3.63 for years.
Today I did update to 6.28 (evaluation)
This results in the following behavior:
If I try to connect a SSH2 server (firewall) I get the message: Error: disconnected: signature check failed

In version 3.63 I did get a popup to verify and allow the signature check. I don't receive that popup in 6.28

What do I forget?, How can I solve this?

Thanks a lot,
Gerrit

I'm evaluating "Absolute Telnet 7.13 release candidate 5" But still get a popup: "disconnected: signature check failed"
It's not explained in the help and I can't find settings in the properties.

Thanks, Gerrit. I'll take a look.

What type of SSH server are you connecting to?

Re: SSH2 connect: Error: disconnected: signature check faile 9 Years, 1 Month ago  
After a number of emails with Gerrit and a lot of hair pulling, I've finally got an answer on this one (and a fix). The problem is a compatibility issue that is specific to the ssh server he is using. The server in question is OpenSSH 3.5p1 embedded in a netasq firewall.

Stock OpenSSH 3.5p1 from openssh.org does not exhibit this problem, so I imagine that the incompatibility was introduced by customization of the OpenSSH server by Netasq. The Netasq OpenSSH version, in combination with a seemingly innocuous change in version 5 created an incompatibility between AbsoluteTelnet (5 & 6) and any netasq products with the same or similar firmware.

Absolute has been modified to account for the difference and a new beta is now available:
