I want to deny access to a single user (test1 ) from ip - 192.168.122.16. So this is what I have added the following line in
Then have restarted sshd after making changes to the sshd_config. But after this change in the conf file all the users from that IP after getting a permission denied message. Instead I want to deny access only to a single user 'test1'.
sshd_config man pages states as follows:
This keyword can be followed by a list of user name patterns, separated by spaces. Login is disallowed for user names that match one of the patterns. Only user names are valid; a numerical user ID is not recognized. By default, login is allowed for all users. If the pattern takes the form USER@HOST then USER and HOST are separately checked, restricting logins to particular users from particular hosts. The allow/deny directives are processed in the following order: DenyUsers, AllowUsers, DenyGroups, and finally AllowGroups.
I am particularly intereted in restricting only the user 'test1' from the above IP. But I am ok with the user doing a login from a diffirent IP. Anything I am missing here ?
