Our servers are running SSH-Tectia 6.1.8 Build 136 version, And we have a requirement to setup a public key authentication from our scan engines. And the security requirement is that the authentication should be blocked if the request is from any other IP addresses apart from scan engines.

I have set up the authorization file accordinly to allow connections only from Scan engine. But have issues in couple of servers where the authentication fails if the Options are specified in the authorization file and it works fine the moment the options line is removed from the authorization file

Snapshot of authorization file contents is a follows

Key scanengine.pub Options allow-from="" , allow-from="" , deny-from="*"

And the issue is only present in couple of servers and the same configuration works fine in other servers.

Thanks for your guidance in advance, Kindly do the needful

Thanks & Regards Sathish
