Yes this behavior is normal!
If you set "PermitRootLogin no" then root logins are NOT permitted! (you wrote: "Both of them have "PermitRootLogin no" in /etc/ssh/sshd_config")
Or did I miss something?
Sorry, it seems I didn't explained me too well, so I'm replying to the list.
In the 3.4p1-215 box if I enter the right root password I keep getting the "Permission denied, please try again." message. This, for me, is normal behaviour.
In the openssh-3.4p1-263 box, it I enter the right root password the remote host immediatly truncates the SSH connection. This, for me, is a strange behaviour, so I was asking the list about that.
Thank you. Kind regards,
