Running Suse 9.2, up to date via Yast, as a server with OpenSSH
3.9p1-3.2. I have been successfully connecting using CVS/pserver and
PuTTY for a couple of weeeks.
This weekend I connected in from remote location using WSFTP Pro 9.01 in
FTP/SSH mode to download a Windows directory tree mounted to the Suse
server via smbmount.
After transfer was successfully completed, Linux went down hard as I
tried to start another transfer.
I repeated process using direct a LAN connection with the same result.
The "messages" log shows :
May 29 01:27:40 engsrv sshd: Accepted publickey for <my name
<my IP deleted> port 12690 ssh2
May 29 01:27:40 engsrv pure-ftpd: (?@localhost) [INFO] New connection
May 29 01:27:40 engsrv pure-ftpd: (?@localhost) [INFO] Logout.
May 29 01:27:41 engsrv sshd: subsystem request for sftp
May 29 11:50:29 engsrv syslogd 1.4.1: restart.
text in <> is my comment.
I deduce from the timestamps that the "subsystem request for sftp" line
is the last thing written before the crash.
I don't know who to suspect yet. Can anyone offer any relevant
