    Hi there
    I was working on security on a new box.
    So i edit sshd_conf and made some changes.
    After that i saved and restart sshd i tried loggin in as root
    and that worked.
    But it was not supose to work because i change it in the conf file.
    When i look in sshd_conf i see the changes i made.
    But for a strange reason it is not changing on the server :confused:

    I tried a reboot already still no effect.

    Anybody has a idea about this issue

    Thanks in advance

    Did you edited the right conf file?

    Try edit this one:

    "/etc/ssh/sshd_config "

    and then do this:

    "service sshd restart"

    No need for reboot

    Yep i edit that file /etc/ssh/sshd_config

    And i even did a locate sshd_conf

    only the above came up.

    I use keys with putty but that can't be the problem.

    Is there any thing in the conf-file that can be wrong so it overrules the conf ?
