    Sshd strict mode


    Hi
    In sshd.conf, there is something called StrictMode.

    It has been set to no. I couldn't exactly figure out what it does. Will any one please explain it ?

    Thank you

    From "man sshd_config":
    StrictModes
    Specifies whether sshd should check file modes and ownership of the user’s files and home directory before accepting
    login. This is normally desirable because novices sometimes accidentally leave their directory or files world-writable.
    The default is "yes".
