"Suddenly" (yesterday?) I noticed that the "sshd daemon" fails;
it is started at system startup (i.e. an automatic service).
Ahem ... it should have rephrased that ... however, from the error
report in the sshd.log, it should be clear that the daemon fails as
soon as it receives its first "ssh" request ... (and not before).
Give me a break!
Just now I decided to UNinstall the F-Secure anti-virus ...
And guess what ...? Yes, NOW sshd replies again to requests after system
Now I wonder if I will find the same result on W7 when I install
(yes, W7 also has F-Secure anti-virus installed).
Anyone using F-Secure on W7 and operating the sshd?
