The daemon is up and has been up for a long time. In fact, when I made these
changes to sshd_config, for instance as a test maxauthtries to 3 I also
reloaded it during a ssh terminal session. After which I logged back in and
as a test, purposely errored the tries; it still defaulted to 6 despite the
sshd_config file change and reloading.

when I say I get no message I mean to state as such:

$/etc/rc.d/sshd status <--carriage return
$ <--no message after return.

Thanks Pete.

(couple things, please don't top post, and be sure to keep

i'm not sure what you mean about "no message".  make sure you have
sshd_enabled="YES" in your /etc/rc.conf.

also check to see if sshd is running by using "ps".  if it is not, try
starting it by hand - this will tell you if there are any errors on
startup.  once it starts cleanly by hand then use the init script in

the man page for sshd is very helpful, and should answer many of the
questions you may have - including how to start the daemon by hand,
etc..  type:
man sshd
