SSH config on OpenSuse 10.2


Hi

Just begun looking on SSH, and have it running on my OpenSuse 10.2 box. But I can't find the source for the ssh configuration. I've got ssh running on the defualt port 22, but when i look in the sshd_config file in /etc it looks like all options actually are comented out, even the parameter for running port 22. Where does OpenSuse find it's paramteres for running SSH?

/A.

Normally, the config file is /etc/ssh/sshd_config. I don't use OpenSuse, but it would probably use the same. Most options for SSHD have defaults that will be used if not specified.

all parameters of sshd_config that are commented out are default values !

you should change at least the following settings in sshd_conf:

1) something like "ssh protocol 1,2". delete the 1, only use 2
2) Permit root login "no"

for your safety....
