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?
