    After a lot of failed attempt trying to acces my server via SSH, I amsecuring my box.
    The first was secure sshd editing sshd_config (as I've seen in another thread of this forum)
    But when I try to restart sshd (via telnet) I get this error

    Starting sshd:eek:penvt: vt 8 is in use; command aborted
    use `openvt -f' to force.

    Although sshd is running and accepting conections.

    Restarting via WHM show some errors, but sshd go on running.

    Why this error message?
