Re: openssh + pam authentication failing +md5 (?!) HELP HELP HELP !

I ruled out the third possibility by changing the pass , making it md5 again and tried to login with ssh...but it was permission denied

About the first possibility .. is there a way to check if the pam module 'pam_unix.so' supports (freebsd) md5 encryption ?

Second possibility .. after changing the pass of testuser (md5) and of another user and tried just a plain login from the console it works, login uses pam authentication ...
