I know this subject is better suited to the freebsd mailing list but I send it here bcoz this mail is further to the mail I sent a couple of weeks ago about weird DH problems with FreeBSD OpenSSH.

It turned out that reinstalling OpenSSL solved the issue.

For those of you working on FreeBSD this is the solution.

# cd /usr/ports/security/openssl
#make deinstall
#make reinstall

I will make available a cleaner fix if I get around to it.

I have been seeing several instances of Apache SSL not working, OpenSSH not working sometimes and various other problems with FreeBSD users.

Root cause is a broken OpenSSL library.

Please refer to my thread titled "weird DH problems" for details.
