Disable root access on SSHD

Why slackware does not initially disable root access on SSHD is beyond me, here is how to turn it off:

login as root:

nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Change from:

# PermitRootLogin yes

Chang to:

PermitRootLogin no

Save and exit

Issue command:

/etc/rc.d/rc.sshd restart
