Hi,

Whenever i boot the machine, the sshd started using rc script is not
accepting ssh connection from a normal user. However it connects as root
user and also connects as a user when the sshd is restarted. The error
message is
"fatal: PAM session setup failed[6]: Permission denied"

What would be the reason for this behaviour ?

I am using Linux-2.6.5-1.358 (Fedora Core release 2) and openssh version
(OpenSSH_3.6.1p2, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x0090701f ) which came
with the distribution. The debug out is given below.

Thanks
