RSA Securid PAM 8.0 on SUSE Linux 10 with AM8.4

We have a deployed RSA Securid AM 8.4. There are some 40+ SUSE SLES version 10 modes that we are trying too integrate. 


We are testing using PAM Agent 8.0. ACETEST succeeds with PASSCODE MFA authentication. However, ssh - using does not work, and we do not see anything in AM activity monitor. we have modified the sd_pamd.conf and ssd files according to documentation. We already have 20+ RHES nodes working fine.

Susefirewall is disabled.


(RSA documentation says SuSE 10 is only supported with PAM 6.0. However, I am not sure if PAM 6.0 will work with AM 8.4)


I will really appreciate assistance.
