Didn't mean to cross-post . . . saw this new newsgroup just now.

I am trying to migrate a GroupWise 7 system from the NetWare platform
to OES on Linux using the GroupWise Server Migration Utility 1.0

To connect to the linux server, the migration utility asks for the
root password, but does not connect. It keeps telling me I have an
invalid password (not true).

I have putty (SSH) installed on the workstation and it works fine. I
have even disabled PAM authentication on the OES server so that I can
use SSH1. Now both SSH1 and SSH2 work fine from putty, but still the
migration utility fails.
