I've updated my firewall to OpenSUSE v11.0. I'm trying to disable password

I'm missing, as this used to be simple to do.

tnx jk

Did you restart sshd? rcsshd restart?

Also, if you installed your public key in authroized_keys on the
server, it might
be failing password authentication and then simply turning around and
using your public/private key pairs
giving the appearance of working.

Try logging in as a different user.
