Software News   Software News : OpenSSH 4.6p1-2 Features and Fixes
   posted by ssolie on 20-Aug-2007 14:56:51 (3004 reads)
Thanks to feedback from the Amiga community I have been able to add some features and fix some bugs in my OpenSSH port to make it better than ever. For example, I can edit files with vi from my Mac OS X box with TERM set to 'amiga' using standard CON:. No other special software required.


Grab it from OS4Depot today.

Changes include:
- now uses $USER when trying to connect when no user has been specified instead of defaulting to root (thanks Val Marti)
- replaced polling of window size change events with an input.device handler which fixes cut & paste (thanks Alex Carmona)
- fixed server timeout issues caused by the use of select() with a one second timeout (thanks Alex Carmona)
- now uses waitselect() to reliably detect Amiga signals
- added a workaround for a problem with the WaitSelect() function which would miss signals when the timeout is zero
- switched to using the new mutex API

I've got some probs using it.
Here's the output.

/RAM Disk/openssh-bin> ssh xx.xxxxxxxx.se
Could not create directory '/home/.ssh'.
The authenticity of host 'xx.xxxxxxx.se (xx.xxx.xxx..xxx)' can't be established.

Looks like you're missing the HOME: assign, or you could set the env-var HOME instead...

we shouldn't need an home assign on aos..
we have progdir.

what do you have home: assigned to?

It is really non-sense to say that we don't need HOME:

HOME: isn't consequently the same like PROGDIR:. So ssolie is right -> RTFM

But I also got issues with the ssh releases of ssolie. I am using ViNCeD as CON: and when I use his openssh port I am unable to enter any key as soon as I am connected to my Linux machine. With the GG ssh port everything works fine.

@damato

The same error happens with normal CON: so it's not just ViNCEd. I mentioned it to ssolie a while back, but can't remember if there was a solution...

Set your TERM to 'amiga' or 'vt100' or 'dumb' on the Amiga side.

@ssolie

I have $TERM set to "amiga" and still can't enter any password when asked for it. Both "vt100" and "dumb" failed as well. Not sure it recieves any keys, but the enter key is definately not sent when asking for a password on the other side.

damato: i didn't say that progdir is the same as home..
but i don't think an home: assign should be needed in an amiga port... as it's a unix thing.
progdir can be used to get around the home: thingie mostly.
maybe not for this app though.

i do admit that i haven't read the manual for openssh, but this error messager seemed to me as an
misstake in the amiga port. sorry.

Sorry, but just setting the TERM to 'amiga' doesn't really help. it still doesn't allow me to enter anything at all. Especially because after having set it to something else than 'ansi', everything is screwed up in the logged in session in my linux machine. Here I can perfectly set the TERM to 'ansi', use the GG ssh version and can use ALL cursor keys to get the history buffer of bash, perfectly use 'vim'. Only CTRL-C isn't perfectly forwarded to the ssh connection.

So I am afraid, but for me your ssh port isn't working at all.

No matter what I set TERM to, 'amiga', 'ansi', 'dumb', or 'vt100', whenever I hit 'Enter' or 'Return' all I get is a ^M and nothing happens.

I set my TERM to amiga and log into my Mac OS X machine and I get colour and can use all of the arrow keys, etc.

Sounds like you need to teach your Linux box about the amiga termcap.

If it's not too stupid a question, how do you do that? I have similar problems here.

Find the termcap file (likely /etc/termcap) and make sure there is an entry for amiga in there. It may be that termcap is obsolete on your system so then you'll need to check terminfo instead (likely /usr/share/terminfo/a) for a suitable file. Just man terminfo for docs on that system.

In all these cases I think the problem is the server side does not understand the Amiga OS's flavour of terminal. There may also be some startup scripts on the server side that do not know what to do with a foreign system like Amiga and are behaving badly. Whatever Mac OS X is doing it is sure working great (kudos to Apple).

@all
One could argue the Amiga side should change instead (e.g. full VT100 compatibility) but ssh has nothing to do with that. Please complain to your friendly neighbourhood OS4 developer about that.

I have no termcap as such but i do have terminfo directories

/lib/terminfo

and

/usr/share/terminfo

/usr/share/terminfo contains files for amiga amiga-8bit and amiga-vnc

I just tried the openssh poert described here:
http://aminet.net/package/comm/tcp/openssh_note

it worked a fraction better, eg 'mail' would work but cursor keys were still broken.

@broadblues
If you are having trouble with your 'enter' key then you might want to try the command "stty icrnl" on the Unix side of things.

This solves the "enter" key problem, thanks!

Still have issues with the arrow keys though. The cursor always moves up and down instaed of slecting the history items.

But editors such as vim they insert charater sequences instead of moving the cursor!
