    We have installed ssh on our AIX (4.3.3 and 5.1) systems. It seems that ssh
    doesn't look at the AIX specific login parameters however. We have quite a
    few IDs that we do nt want people to logon with. We have set these up as "su
    only" IDs (rlogin=false login=false su=true). Using traditional methods such
    as telnet or rsh these IDs cannot login to the box. However with ssh they
    get right in, defeating the whole purpose of these IDs.

    Our ssh version is: OpenSSH_3.0.2p1, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL

    Did we miss something in the ssh configuration? Any ideas and assistance
    would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
