Re: ssh & redhat4.2: You don't exist, go away! (fwd)

FYI... I don't know whether this is a PAM problem, a RedHat problem, or
something else, but people here will probably know what to fix, if it
hasn't happened already.

Just some more information: The problem occurs only for users from NIS,
not for those with entries in /etc/passwd. Using something like this

   for i in 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9; do ssh remotehost; done

usually gives some successful ssh interspersed between many "Go away"s.

This is not a general NIS or Linux problem but rather Redhat-specific,
since on another system I manage (Slackware 3.0) it does not occur.
