The box I am currently working on is using ssh 1.2.31 and ssh 2.0.13. The machine is set so that when you logon, you authenticate through a university kerberos server...when I use ssh1, I authenticate through this, it seems to use the /etc/login.conf file. When I use ssh2, I have to use my local password to get there any way to fix this?

my real issue is that when I change /etc/security/login.cfg, it changes how ssh1 authenticates, but not how ssh2 does it. Also, ssh2 seems to bypass expired passwords, and accounts that have been locked due to failed login attempts.

what does sshd2's daemon config say at AllowedAuthentications and RequiredAuthentications
