I have an SSH server set up on my desktop. I recently ran an Ubuntu system update and ever since the SSH login hangs. I've searched through the config files for an obvious fix, but I am not quite sure which config files are for the server and which are for the client. From what I can tell, there is a discrepancy in the ecdsa verification. I tried to delete the keys and start over, but no luck. Also, I tried --purge deleting and reinstalling the server and client, but I am left with the same error. Here is my output when I run ssh -v:
and here it hangs for a while before saying exiting with an error. I have two questions.
OpenSSH_5.9p1 Debian-5ubuntu1, OpenSSL 1.0.1 14 Mar 2012

1) Where is the config file to eliminate all the options but a password login on the host side? How do I implement that change? (I imagine it is just commenting out a line or two but I am a serious noob)
2) What kind of error am I experiencing here, and how can I correct it without eliminating the ecdsa verification?
Thanks for the help.
