dropbear doesn't start after changing the password
|Reported by:||pyther@…||Owned by:||developers|
|Component:||base system||Version:||Backfire 10.03|
After flashing my router with 10.03 RC2 I telnet'd in and issued passwd to change the root password. Then I attempted to login via ssh using the command ssh firstname.lastname@example.org without any luck. Restarting the dropbear service via /etc/rc.d/dropbear seemed to resolve the issue.
However, if you do not restart the dropbear service upon reboot ssh is still disabled. This results in not being able to login since telnet is disabled and ssh appears to also be disabled. The web interface crashes whenever I attempt to login (this might be a separate issue).
