I install OpenSSH like this:

cd /usr/ports/security/openssh-portable
make -DOPENSSH_OVERWRITE_BASE install

That puts things here:
/usr/bin/ssh
/usr/sbin/sshd
/etc/ssh/sshd_config

BUT... it seems to be IGNORING the sshd_config!

TWO major security holes:

#1 - It won't let me turn off passwords 
     (PasswordAuthentication no)

#2 - It only requires I type the first 8 characters
     of my password!  (I use 16-character password.)


I don't have these problems on OpenBSD.
Any idea why they would be on FreeBSD?
