#14376 new defect

Takes a day to login after password is configured

Reported by: oflameo2@… Owned by: developers
Priority: response-needed Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: base system Version: Trunk
Keywords: first login, password, chage, aging, busybox Cc: oflameo2@…

Description

I installed Barrier Breaker on two wndr3800 routers. Both time after I reflashed the routers using recovery flash in failsafe mode.

After I got Barrier Breaker installed I telneted to the first router and tried to configure the root password. Leaving open the telnet session I tried the login the router with ssh. It forced a password change every time I connected to it with ssh and closed after the password is reconfigured. After 30 minutes I gave up and left it sit there to the next morning. The next morning I could login with ssh just fine and actually do things in the session other than change the password.

The next day the same thing happened with my other wndr3800. I had to wait a day until my ssh login did anything other than force another password change.

You must understand that it is very annoying to have to wait a whole day unnecessarily to configure a new install of a router. Do you have a work around so I will not have to do that?

Did you tried to reboot the device after the password was set for the first time (via telnet)?
I reconfigured my routers multiple times and NEVER experienced such issues.

I did an OEM installation using the TFTP method.

It seems I had the intermittent problem because I built in openssh instead of dropbear. I did that to save space by not having as many programs and to get the features of openssh that dropbear didn't have such as sftp.

openssh probably doesn't get enough entropy to generate the keys. You can use the openssh sftp server with dropbear as well.

Yeah, that makes sense. I got one of my routers to the point where I felt comfortable enough to deploy it by building in dropbear instead of openssh. Boy, did my wnr2000 suck in comparison. Openwrt is less annoying to administrate too.
