Description Pierre Ossman cendio 2017-01-11 16:15:40 CET
If a client side local device daemon dies, then you will get lots of these in the system logs:

Jan 11 16:13:43 localhost sshd[2188]: channel 9: open failed: connect failed: Connection refused

And lots of sockets in the TIME_WAIT state. This can cause issues like that of bug 6125.

It would be nice if we could solve this issue, or at least mitigate it.
Comment 1 Pierre Ossman cendio 2017-01-11 16:16:40 CET
One idea is for our ssh client to close a channel if it notices that it fails to establish connections over it.

We need to consider any races during session connection though where the daemons might not be up yet.
