Hi there!

 

I'm facing a similar issue to the one posted in:

Tech Tip - CA Privileged Access Manager: Issue with SSH access to Solaris via CA PAM 2.8.2  

 

Not against a Solaris box but a Ubuntu Linux one, although Resolution says it was going to be fixed in 2.8.3 release, I'm running CAPAM_2.8.3.02 but the issue persist.

 

Issue:

  SSH applet opens and shows ""Connected to server running SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_6.6.1p1 Ubuntu-2ubuntu2.8".

  But then no login prompt is ever displayed, turning into timeout.

Source:

  CAPAM_2.8.3.02 (Web and Java client)

Target:

  Ubuntu 14.04 x86_64 devices with SSH applet enabled.

  SSH-2.0 OpenSSH_6.6.1p1

  kex_parse_kexinit: curve25519-sha256@libssh.org,ecdh-sha2-nistp256,ecdh-sha2-nistp384,ecdh-sha2-nistp521,diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha256,diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha1,diffie-hellman-group14-sha1,diffie-hellman-group1-sha1

 

Troubleshooting:

- For both Web (browser) and Java client, cache has been cleared

- Successful SSH access from other Linux boxes has been tested. From:

   Ubuntu 14.04.5 3.13.0-129-generic x86_64
   SSH-2.0 OpenSSH_6.6.1p1 Ubuntu-2ubuntu2.8, OpenSSL 1.0.1f

- ~/CAPAMClient/logs.log output:
SSHInteractiveClient.fatalDisconnect() : 'Disconnected, reason: Exception caught when processing RX pkt'     syserr [Switchboard]
SSH2Transport.disconnectInternal() : 'disconnect: Exception caught when processing RX pkt'     syserr [Switchboard]

 

 

Any suggestion(s) would be much appreciated.
