Well, I did:
$ cd /etc/ssh
$ rm ssh_host*
$ ssh-keygen -N "" -t rsa-sha2-512 -b 4096 -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key
$ dpkg-reconfigure openssh-server
... generates the remaining ECDSA and ED25519 ...
I would just double check that is the file being used for host keys and not
something been altered on the hosts /etc/ssh/sshd_config [I banged my head
on this recently so it is an off chance it might be the case.]
New host signature detected, but I still get on F33 when trying to
$ ssh -vv ...
debug1: Offering public key: /home/praiskup/.ssh/id_rsa RSA SHA256:...
debug1: send_pubkey_test: no mutual signature algorithm
And still -oPubkeyAcceptedKeyTypes=+ssh-rsa helps... Does that meant that
ssh-keygen on Debian 9 is broken? How am I able to tell this is server or
sshd -d -p 2222 on the server and then see what it is saying it is doing.
or some similar item. also look to see what
grep KexAlgorithms /etc/ssh/sshd_config says
if it has a default of ssh-rsa in its list and none of the rsa-sha2 items..
the server will try this anyway.
