OpenSSH server not working - connection closed

Hi,

I think I faced the same (or a very similar) problem today.

DNS is not working 100% correctly on my server yet, and as a 
consequence, host name lookups do not work from the specific machine the 
sshd was started on.
Using the default settings sshd does name resolution checks that will 
fail, so it may serve as a temporary solution to set UseDNS to no in 
sshd_config.

At least it was the solution in my case, maybe it helps...

Best regards,

Laszlo
