- (djm) Pick up LOGIN_PROGRAM from environment or PATH if not set by headers
- (djm) OpenBSD CVS updates: - 2000/08/18 20:07:23 [ssh.c] accept remsh as a valid name as well; - 2000/08/18 20:17:13 [deattack.c crc32.c packet.c] rename crc32() to ssh_crc32() to avoid zlib name clash. do not move to libz crc32 function yet, because it has ugly "long"'s in it; - 2000/08/18 20:26:08 [scp.1 scp.c] -S prog support; - 2000/08/18 20:50:07 [scp.c] knf - 2000/08/18 20:57:33 [log-client.c] shorten - 2000/08/19 12:48:11 [channels.c channels.h clientloop.c ssh.c ssh.h] support for ~. in ssh2 - 2000/08/19 15:29:40 [crc32.h] proper prototype - 2000/08/19 15:34:44 [authfd.c authfd.h key.c key.h ssh-add.1 ssh-add.c ssh-agent.1] [ssh-agent.c ssh-keygen.c sshconnect1.c sshconnect2.c Makefile] [fingerprint.c fingerprint.h] add SSH2/DSA support to the agent and some other DSA related cleanups. (note that we cannot talk to's ssh2 agents) - 2000/08/19 15:55:52 [channels.c channels.h clientloop.c] more ~ support for ssh2 - 2000/08/19 16:21:19 [clientloop.c] oops - 2000/08/20 12:25:53 [session.c] We have to stash the result of get_remote_name_or_ip() before we close our socket or getpeername() will get EBADF and the process will exit. Only a problem for "UseLogin yes". - 2000/08/20 12:30:59 [session.c] Only check /etc/nologin if "UseLogin no" since login(1) may have its own policy on determining who is allowed to login when /etc/nologin is present. Also use the _PATH_NOLOGIN define. - 2000/08/20 12:42:43 [auth1.c auth2.c session.c ssh.c] Add calls to setusercontext() and login_get*(). We basically call setusercontext() in most places where previously we did a setlogin(). Add default login.conf file and put root in the "daemon" login class. - 2000/08/21 10:23:31 [session.c] Fix incorrect PATH setting; noted by Markus.
