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

using a password. Is there something I'm missing, as this used to be
simple to do.

Don't forget to set ChallengeResponseAuthentication to "no"

That seems to have done the trick. However, it wasn't necessary in the previous firewall, using SUSE 10.0. In that one I just had to set passwordauthentication to no (I verified that with the backup copy of sshd_config.). Also, even disabling passwords using Yast SSHD config doesn't seem to affect that challengeresponse setting. Is this a bug somewhere. Now, I can reopen ssh in the firewall.
