How to configure OpenSSH on RH 9. I see 2 ssh.config files in /etc/ssh/ but which one does the demeon use? Also if I want to change any defaults do I just remove the # from the beginning of the line to enable it as in httpd.conf?

I didn't see 2 files, how you got then?

To change the defaults you can remove the # and change the values if you wish. If you modify the /etc/ssh/ file, you will affect all users in your system, if you prefer to modify only to your user, modify the file in your homedir ~/.ssh/config ...

Hope that helps ...

The /etc/ssh/sshd_config is the server side configuration file and the /etc/ssh/ssh_config is the client side configuration file.
