hi there,

just figured that the parameter

MaxAuthTries 0

in /etc/ssh/sshd_config

denies all ssh logins with username/password as credentials.
this used to work just fine on my 11.0 system which i upgraded to this 11.1 x86
version.


I set MaxAuthTries 0 many releases ago, when this feature was implemented in
openssh, and i read in many articles and documentations to set it to zero so
that only exactly one login should be allowed for ssh access.

wondering why i need
MaxAuthTries 1
now to get the same effect.

bug? or is it me who is understanding this all wrong?
thanks.
