Victor:
 
Also, check out section 4.4.2 of the security guide:
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/RHEL-4-Manual/security-guide/s
1-wstation-privileges.html
 
It addresses your question precisely.

Subject: Re: [CentOS] Change from Root


What I was interested in doing was to make it impossible for root to login
directly, but rather enable other users to login and then su to root. So I
edited /etc/ssh/sshd_config to read:
#PermitRootLogin no
(It was the dir I didn't know.) It initially said "yes", but it was and is
commented. How is it that I then and still can login directly as root? Is
reboot necessary?
TIA,
V

VPS stands for virtual private server.
