    Hi Tom,

    The only way to change the file remotely is by using SU as one of the
    users. The error normally means SU belongs to the WHEEL group.
    You will need to find a user belonging to WHEEL in order to sort this
    out.
    On a security note.... I would not recommend re-activating remote root
    access, SU should be all you need.

    Regards,

    Marc Towers

    Subject: problems when opening an ssh session

    Hi All,

    I have an account on a Solaris 2.6 machine in which the administrator
    has
    installed SSH 3.2.0. Then I have 2 Solaris 2.8 machines (for which I am
    the
    administrator) in
    which I have installed OpenSSH versions 3.4p1 and 3.5p1 respectively.

    Now if I open a connection from the SSH 3.2.0 client to the OpenSSH
    3.5p1
    server everything works properly, but if I open a connection from the
    SSH
    3.2.0 client to the OpenSSH 3.4p1 server I get (from ssh -vvv):

    debug: Connecting to pma.iso.vilspa.esa.es, port 22... (SOCKS not used)
    debug: Ssh2/ssh2.c:2297: Entering event loop.

    and it doesn't proceed to the next line, which should be:

    debug: Ssh2Client/sshclient.c:1421: Creating transport protocol.

    So I can open an ssh session with the 3.5p1 server but not with the
    3.4p1
    server.
    Could anybody please give me a hand with this problem ?

    Thanks a lot in advance,

    Rom
