I am trying to SSH to a remote server from my college network (proxy). However, I am getting this error whenever I try to SSH to the host
ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host
Here is the complete description :-
ssh -vvv root@serverIP -p serverPort
OpenSSH_5.9p1 Debian-5ubuntu1, OpenSSL 1.0.1 14 Mar 2012 debug1: Reading configuration data /home/prashant/.ssh/config debug1: /home/prashant/.ssh/config line 1: Applying options for * debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config debug1: /etc/ssh/ssh_config line 19: Applying options for * debug2: ssh_connect: needpriv 0 debug1: Executing proxy command: exec /usr/bin/corkscrew 22.214.171.124 8080 serverIP serverPort debug1: identity file /home/prashant/.ssh/id_rsa type -1 debug1: identity file /home/prashant/.ssh/id_rsa-cert type -1 debug1: identity file /home/prashant/.ssh/id_dsa type -1 debug1: identity file /home/prashant/.ssh/id_dsa-cert type -1 debug1: identity file /home/prashant/.ssh/id_ecdsa type -1 debug1: identity file /home/prashant/.ssh/id_ecdsa-cert type -1 debug1: permanently_drop_suid: 1000 ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host
My config file contains this
Host * ProxyCommand /usr/bin/corkscrew 126.96.36.199 8080 %h %p
Can anyone help me in solving this issue ?
