There is a nasty bug in the ssh source code tree that was
introduced as a patch against the ssh-1.2.23 code base. Here is the
From: Eivind Gjelseth <email@example.com>

Subject: Ssh 1.2.23 -- patch for project accounting on SGI
[-- Attachment #1 --]
[-- Type: text/PLAIN, Encoding: 7bit, Size: 4.3K --]
I have made a patch to do project accounting on SGI. I have patched
config.h.in, configure.in and sshd.c to automatic detect
/usr/include/proj.h on IRIX-6.x and set's the variable HAVE_SGI_PROJ_H.
1.2.26 adds SGI project accounting. I.e. Autoconf checks
for IRIX and the compile will default to use SGI
project accounting and will terminate the connection if the user
cannot be found in /etc/projects.
The getprojuser system call fails. SGI project setup fails, and you are promptly disconnected.
This happens if you don't have the /etc/project and /etc/projectid files set up.
/etc/project should look like:
The code is in sshd.c
3663 #ifdef HAVE_SGI_PROJ_H
3665 On a SGI, set the account number for the current process to the user's
3666 default account. If this is not done, the process will have an account
3667 of zero and accounting will not operate correctly.

3676 int err;
3677 int naccts;
3678 projid_t pbuf;
3680 /* Find default project for a particular user */
3681 if ((naccts = getprojuser(username, &pbuf, 1)) < 0)
3683 debug("System call getprojuser failed");
3687 /* Create a new array session and moves the current
3688 process from its original array session to the new one. */
3689 if (newarraysess() < 0)
3691 debug("System call newarraysess failure");
3695 /* Change the project ID for the array session. */
3696 /* Must be changed after the new array session has been created. */
3697 if (naccts)
3698 err = setprid(pbuf.proj_id);
3700 if (err != 0)
3702 debug("System call setprid failure");
3708 #endif /* HAVE_SGI_PROJ_H */
If you don't want to set up project accounting on your SGI run
Comment out this line in config.h after having run configure and
/* #define HAVE_SGI_PROJ_H 1 */
Should work then.
Configure is not able to recognize that the
gettimeofday() function does not accept the TZ argument on
SINIX. Therefore you need to put the define statement
HAVE_NO_TZ_IN_GETTIMEOFDAY in the top level Makefile.
- DEFS = -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -DHAVE_NO_TZ_IN_GETTIMEOFDAY
- Rename /etc/sshd_config.sample to
- Rename /etc/ssh_config.sample to
- Run /usr/local/etc/ssh/generate-ssh-keys.sh
Edit config files
This is ssh client systemwide configuration file. This
file provides defaults for users, and the values can be changed in
per-user configuration files or on the command line.
This is ssh server systemwide configuration file. You
should change the AllowHosts option to an appropriate mask e.g.
*.fth.sbs.de. Please add the path to the PID file !!! The rc script to
stop ssh in /etc/rc0.d/ will not work otherwise.
Add ssh Port# 22 # ssh 22/tcp to the services file.
Path to ssh
Add /usr/local/bin to the PATH var (it
should already be in it ;-)). Normally there is no need to add the
/usr/local/sbin/ to the user PATH because no user will ever want
to run that. The startup scripts take care of adding the appropriate
PATH when starting ssh.
Startup and shutdown of ssh
Create a startup script for sshd The startup scripts
differ somewhat between the several operating systems. IRIX uses
another method of starting daemons and software than SINIX (or
Reliant-UNIX) and Solaris does. I tried to build the
ssh startup scripts native for every OS. If there is some time left
I'll publish them on this site.
Before you start ssh for the first time you need to
compute a SSHD hostkey file. If you have a clean source
code distribution then a make install takes care of the SSHD
hostkeyfile. I you install my binary distribution then you have to run
the script generate-ssh-keys.sh to generate a host key (or
simply run a ssh-keygen. You may want to change the number of
bits that the hostkey has. If you are compiling ssh the "make
install" will take care of running ssh-keygen.
