7/4     I'm accessing soda by typing ssh -X
        at a Linux prompt.  At the soda prompt, I can type "xmessage hello &",
        and I get a nice little greeting from myself popping up on my display.
        But if I type xterm &, the process runs ok, but nothing appears on
        my screen.  What am I doing wrong?
        \_ Works just fine for me...  try turning on SSH debug with -v ?

9/26    I remember there was web version of the motd with search function
        (originally due to kchang ?).  The last time I used it it was hosted
        on the csua website but I can't remember its url (onset of dementia?)
        now. Can somebody plz post it, tnx.
           \_ for some reason I couldn't log in since Sept and the archiver

7/14    Does anyone know of a solution allowing s/key for Windows logons?
        \_ You mean other than this?
           \_ Logons _to_ Windows boxes.  Interested in whether there are
              any similar OTP solutions not requiring one-time pads, exact
              time or communication between the target host and the one
              generating the response to auth challenge.  -John

5/25    Various insecure services have been disabled, including FTP, per
        departmental policy and/or request. You should be using sftp. =)
        \_ This should be in officia
        \_ When sftp shows this:

2/29    Anyone here have access to an openbsd machine? I'd like to know if
        their implementation of s/key is broken for SHA-1 and RIPEMD-160
        (at least, it's broken in Yuri Yudin's port of openbsd s/key).
        From RFC 2289, running 'skey -sha1 99 correct' and using
        "OTP's are good" as the passphrase should give
        "AURA ALOE HURL WING BERG WAIT". If someone can try that, I'd

11/25   How do I get openssh to work with s/key? I've got skey working and
        have passwords, but having trouble making openssh use them.
        \_ obGoogle
                \_ Google on "skey openssh" gives a million links on
                   the old ssh vulnerability
        \_ Why not just use password-encrypted authorization keys?

7/29    Can some one tell us some definitive info about what's going on
        with pop?  it hasn't worked since the ip change.  Do I need to
        change port number?
        \_ The sort-of official, and thoroughly unannounced answer is that
           clear-text POP/IMAP has been disabled since the recent compromise.
           You can only use SSL enabled POP/IMAP clients.  Hopefully we will

6/21    Since keyinit has been disabled and ssh doesn't work for me (behind
        company firewall/proxy), what other options do I have to login to
        csua?  Already tried ssh with http-tunnel and socks2http.  -allenchu
        \_ Find someone who'll let you telnet into their shell account
           and ssh in from there. -Someone who ran out of keys too.
           \_ People like you are simply irresponsible bastards. You know

5/3     What's up with s/key?
        soda:~ [104] keyinit
        error in opening database: Permission denied
        \_ skey bad, telnet good

1/15    How come we don't need to make a
        secure page?
        \_ offer to buy the CSUA an SSL certificate so that we don't
           have to deal with stupid idiots who don't know how to deal
           with self-signed keys.

2/13    How is telnetd configured to disallow logins?  It seems to allow all
        in the hosts.allow file.  (here on Soda)
        \_ man skey.access
        \_ In general you can just comment it out in /etc/inetd.conf.
           Or just don't run inetd at all...
            \_ i'm not a complete moron, i know how to turn off telnetd.
