    Default Pam authentication

    Hello Linux guys,

    I want to setup a ssh connection from my client pc to my server, but each time I try to do so, I can't login.
    When I go look in to the log file of my server, it says:

    pam_ldap: missing "host" in file "/etc/ldap.conf"
    error: PAM: Authentication failure for illegal user test-client from

    does someone know what this problem is and how to fix this?
