    I am using ssh client (version openssh-clients-2.1.1p4-1) to connect to a remote ssh server. When I fire the command
    ssh remotehost -l username -v
    it prints the following information and then hangs, doesn't go ahead of this !!
    debug: Got SSH2_MSG_KEXDH_REPLY.
    debug: keytype ssh-dss
    debug: keytype ssh-dss
    debug: keytype ssh-dss
    debug: Host 'wox' is known and matches the DSA host key.
    debug: bits set: 528/1024
    debug: len 55 datafellows 0
    debug: dsa_verify: signature correct
    debug: Wait SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS.
    debug: GOT SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS.
    debug: send SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS.
    debug: done: send SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS.
    debug: done: KEX2.
    debug: send SSH2_MSG_SERVICE_REQUEST
    On the server side, if I run the sshd in the DEBUG mode, it goes till
    debug1: SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS received
    debug1: KEX done
    It seems that on the SSH2_MSG_SERVICE_REQUEST doesn't reach till the server.
    Can you tell me where is the problem and what would I need to change to rectify the same??
    Waiting for reply,
