Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Help! no SSH Telnet Access

Posted by MaineBob OConnor on

I have no physical access to the box. My friend Bill would need to drive about 2 hours to get to the server. The server is the "white sheep", the only Linux box in a farm with "black sheep" MS servers. He was the one who did the install early this year. I don't know which kernel but it was whatever came with RH7.0. As I understand it, he would need to pull the box from the Rack and put it on the bench with keyboard/monitor to do an upgrade... 'cause that is the way he did it ....

Now, I'm thinking maybe I need to get a NEW box quick and move the good stuff while I can....

Hey.... this appears to be an attack via SSH? I thought that SSH was secure?
