I'm failing to connect to an SSH server instance and the verbose output contains
debug1: Roaming not allowed by server. The following predictable and there avoidable problems arise:
- Roaming means to access services from different types of networks. I can't figure out what it could mean in the context of the verbose output of a
ssh6.6.1 client running on Ubuntu 14.04.
- It is not clear whether this is an error or not and if it is whether it is causing the failure of the login or not (I don't want to dive into the connection failure here, though; none of the output message of
sshdoes BTW -> more problems and time waisting - you have been warned!)
- I queried
site:www.openssh.org roamingin google with empty result and manpages don't contain the term. It is nonsense to use it even if it was documented because of its ambiguity!
What could the message mean? How could I use it to debug the large set of other highly ambiguous, unintuitive and unhelpful error and other messages of SSH?
