Well, I got my Mac SE/30 running NetBSD 1.6, and it works pretty well.
I'm going to use it as a webserver on my DMZ (even an SE/30 can saturate
my dinky little 128Kbit upstream on my DSL line when serving static
pages). (For now, though, it's on my LAN, plugged into the same hub as
the machine I'm ssh'ing from, so the firewall isn't an issue yet.)
I've got an httpd working, and I'm tring to set up ssh so I can use scp
to update the website. I'm not terribly familiar with ssh, and I know
that a 16MHz 68030 is hundreds of times slower than my K6-2/500MHz, but
ssh takes what seems to be an inordinately long time to get going.
If I try to ssh over, using "sh -vvv hostname" from my Linux box, the
process stalls for roughly five minutes on:
debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_REPLY
Then it proceeds, but I wasn't able to ssh as root; even given the right
password, it denied me. I didn't have time to try a regular user; it might
be configured to deny remote root logins. The main question I have is, is
the five-minute delay inevitable on an SE/30? It happens the same way
ssh'ing *out* from the SE/30, too. Is there anything I can do to speed
If there's a better list for this, or an FM that I should R, please let
me know. Thanks!
