#1356 sss_ssh_knownhostsproxy prevents connection to machine without reverse address
Closed: Fixed None Opened 8 years ago by jhrozek.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=825316 (Fedora)

Description of problem:
When I install IPA server with SSH support (and thus sss_ssh_knownhostsproxy is
used as a ProxyCommand in ssh_config) , I cannot ssh to machine without a
reverse address:

# host vm-050.idm.lab.bos.redhat.com
vm-050.idm.lab.bos.redhat.com has address 10.16.78.50
# host 10.16.78.50
Host 50.78.16.10.in-addr.arpa. not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

# ssh -vv vm-050.idm.lab.bos.redhat.com
OpenSSH_5.9p1, OpenSSL 1.0.0j-fips 10 May 2012

Reverse lookup failed
ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host


When the proxy command is commented, the connection to the same machine works.

This is too strict, we cannot require working reverse records for every machine
we want to connect to.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
sssd-1.8.3-11.fc17.x86_64

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install IPA server on a machine
2. On that machine, try to connect to other machine without a reverse record
3.

Actual results:
Connection is rejected

Expected results:
Connection is accepted


Additional info:
I think this issue is present also in RHEL 6.3 Beta.
