I'm having a
ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host
error when trying to ssh into my mac, from a linux VM
if I try with the verbose option I get this
ssh email@example.com -v OpenSSH_6.6.1, OpenSSL 1.0.1f 6 Jan 2014 debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config debug1: /etc/ssh/ssh_config line 19: Applying options for * debug1: Connecting to 192.168.1.11 [192.168.1.11] port 22. debug1: Connection established. debug1: identity file /home/linux-user/.ssh/id_rsa type -1 debug1: identity file /home/linux-user/.ssh/id_rsa-cert type -1 debug1: identity file /home/linux-user/.ssh/id_dsa type -1 debug1: identity file /home/linux-user/.ssh/id_dsa-cert type -1 debug1: identity file /home/linux-user/.ssh/id_ecdsa type -1 debug1: identity file /home/linux-user/.ssh/id_ecdsa-cert type -1 debug1: identity file /home/linux-user/.ssh/id_ed25519 type -1 debug1: identity file /home/linux-user/.ssh/id_ed25519-cert type -1 debug1: Enabling compatibility mode for protocol 2.0 debug1: Local version string SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_6.6.1p1 Ubuntu-2ubuntu2
I don't know what could be wrong, firewall options are ok.
Searching the web I found a temporary solution, disabling the "remote session" option and then using this command:
sudo $(which sshd) -Dd
Don't think its a propper answer.
This problem started when updating to Yosemite OSX.
Apreciate the help.
