[2530] SSH login only works from one IP

    I have an very bizarre situation, 2 managment stations using the same ssh key try to connect to the device.

    But only one will work. The ssh login will fails with:

    auth: Invalid user name/password on SSH session User
              'manager' is trying to login from <IP>

    Both stations will use the same ssh key and the same ssh client config. So I have no idea, what goes wrong.

    The device will run with YA.16.11.0010.

    After calling ssh via ssh -vvv I found the problem. The OS of the one managment station don't support RSA ssh key's by default. It only like ed25519 key's by default. But the device don't support it. The solution was, to enable SSH-RSA key's for that connection by adding:

    PubkeyAcceptedKeyTypes +ssh-rsa

    to it
