I thought SSH and SFTP were the same thing.
Regardless, I've always used SSH Secure Shell 3.2.9
and I assume that uses SSH. I have no problem connecting and transferring files as root but none of my clients can login.
My sshd_config contains the following line:
Subsystem sftp /usr/libexec/openssh/sftp-server
I downloaded and installed Putty but still got exactly the same result. Only root can login.
This server is a test server sitting right next to me. I cannot login to the console using any of the client usernames/passwords that were created in ISPConfig.
