Hey guys whats up
I recently installed openSSH on my ubuntu box at home. I wanted to be able to access my machine at home and transfer files back and forth between it and my laptop and my schools server.
Since I installed it I have been attempting to make it as secure as I can but for the life of me I haven't been able to get anything to work. The main root of the problem is that I am unable to get into edit the "/etc/ssh/sshd_config" file.
When I issue the command:
sudo vim /etc/ssh/sshd_config
Nothing happens, the file doesn't open or anything
when I issue the command:
The file opens but I am unable to make any permanent changes to the file. This is a problem because some of the security measures I am trying to employ require me to get in and edit this file.
I have noticed that I am also unable to edit the "/etc/hosts.allow" and the "/etc/hosts.deny" files. The same exact things happens.
Does anyone know why I am unable to modify these files, even as root? I have checked permissions on the file and I should have access to modify them using the sudo command, but it just isn't happening.
I am using ubuntu Fiesty 7.04
Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated
thanks in advance
