Thread: Getting pam_mount to work with ssh

  1. #1

    Default Getting pam_mount to work with ssh

    Is anyone using pam_mount with ssh?

    I do a su - user it works fine, but if I do ssh user@localhost it fails

    sshd[1342]: Accepted keyboard-interactive/pam for montgomeryb from ::1 port 48110 ssh2
    sshd[1342]: pam_mount(pam_mount.c:553): pam_mount 2.8: entering session stage
    sshd[1342]: pam_mount(pam_mount.c:172): conv->conv(...): Conversation error
    sshd[1342]: pam_mount(pam_mount.c:476): warning: could not obtain password interactively either
    From searching the net, it seems that this is related to ssh not playing nicely with pam. However, it works fine with the pam_krb5 module and here are the parts of the sshd_config

    PasswordAuthentication yes
    ChallengeResponseAuthentication yes
    UsePAM yes
    Originally, password and challenge were both no. Either way it doesn't seem to make a difference.

    If you can point me in the correct direction it would be much appreciated.

    this thread is quite old, but the problem still seems to exist. I can also mount dirs with KDE-login and local tty but NOT with ssh. I am using OpenSuSE 13.1.
    Is there somewhere a solution? I did not yet find any
    Thanks to all helpers
