SSH user login to linux system
 
Hi,

i want to set the restrict users login to linux system via ssh to 1. I changed the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file maxstartups to 1, it also not working. Any idea where to do the changes.

Thanks.

maxstartups affects max № of unauthenticated attemps
Code:

echo "login hard maxlogins 1" >> /etc/security/limits.conf

Open the file /etc/ssh/sshd_config
Search for the line:
Quote:

#MaxStartups 10
MaxSessions=1
Remove the # from the front and reduce the value to 1, then Restart the service.

Try putting Maxsessions = 1 or MaxSessions 1
and then restart the service, I'm not sure which one will work.
Give it a try, and let me know the results. :)
