Re: error: open /dev/tty failed - could not set controlling tty: No such device or address

i would assume u don't have enough virtual terminals to support all your

how many tty-s (normally in /dev) do u have, do u get this error only when u
have to many users?

I am using OpenSSH_4.5p1, OpenSSL 0.9.8d 28 Sep 2006
on solaris 8 sparc Generic_117350-44.

Very frequently I see this error message in
/var/adm/messages file

error: open /dev/tty failed - could not set
controlling tty: No such device or address

Also users are getting this error when then try to
ssh to remote hosts from this host

ssh -l username -L 1080:localhost:1080 -L
8080:localhost:8080 -L 8888:localhost:8888 remotehost

Permission denied, please try again.
Permission denied (publickey,password).

It doesn't prompt for password, instead it just throws
this error and returns to the prompt.

Any clues on this problem?.
