  • Syntax errors with FTP Config & SSHD Config - 1 of 2 fixed

    Season's Greetings,

    I just came across syntax errors on the FTP Server Info and SSH Server Info pages in Nodeworx.

    The FTP error details link was explicit about deprecated directives which helped solve the problem -- in proftpd.conf by turning off the NoCertRequest TLSOption and enabling TLSVerifyClient. But the sshd error I can't figure out and this is all it says when the details link is clicked:
    404 - Sorry, we cannot find what you were looking for!
    Invalid action: 'syntax' on controller: Ctrl_Nodeworx_Sshd

    My sshd config is fairly standard with hardly a change since the original. Can somebody tell me where to look next?

    Hi sysnop

    I hope your well

    Iím sorry, please could I ask where you see these issues

    Iíve just logged into one of our servers, initiated an sftp connection and the only issue I see shown in ftp logs is it needs enable nls for version 6, so is using version 3

    Iím sorry if I have miss understood sorry

    Many thanks

      Maybe I didn't explain so well. It's not an "error" as I said but rather a "not ok" message.

      The 404 etc. comes after clicking details...

      Aside from config notifications, SSH and SFTP clients are no longer connecting.

        Actually SSH and SFTP servers and clients are working fine. Connections weren't working because of a firewall thing.

        Just wondering about the problem with sshd config syntax.

        Solved: Deprecated option RSAAuthencation had to be nixed plus old ssh keys had to be deleted.

            Thanks John, and not a problem. Have a relaxing holiday with your granddaughter!

            I should have figured this out quicker but it never made sense to remove RSAAuthenticaion until I saw the specifics from Nodeworx. I just needed to look harder at the little triangular warning icon to find a prize inside.
