SSH config on OpenSuse 10.2


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?

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....
