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. -Huy On 7/10/07, pete wright <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:
