When ssh’ing to access.scs.carleton.ca you may receive the error:

Received disconnect: Too many authentication failures

There are at least two reasons for this message. If you provide a wrong password multiple times within a short period of time, it may be locked out – you will have to wait and then try again.This allows SCS to protect our hosts from outside attacks – if you still have an issue please contact SCS Technical Staff.

You may have an ssh key that triggers this warning. In this case try ssh using this option: -o PreferredAuthentications=password so the ssh command would look like:

ssh -o PreferredAuthentications=password access.scs.carleton.ca
