I know that file /QOpenSys/QIBM/UserData/SC1/OpenSSH/etc/sshd_config (on 7.3) can be used to limit who can connect via SSH.

I use PuTTY, and I don't recall any config required when I first started using SSH.

Subject: Using Putty to access IBM i

Ok, I hear all this stuff about how using qsHell and/or pase to process some things isn't quite as kosher as using a ssh client, such as putty. I think Scott Klement explained it with "Need for a "Real" Unix Terminal". I'm starting to accept that.

How does one set up your partition to get to it using a putty client?

I see that the webby "IBM Navigator for i" says that SSHD is started.
F15 subset to port 22
Remote Remote Local Local
Address Port Address Port Type
* * 2##.##.##.## ssh *TCP
And the job is:
Name User Number Type User

I use that address in my putty client on my PC. I get:
login as: rob
Pre-authentication banner message from server:
| Welcome! Please login.
End of banner message from server
Keyboard-interactive authentication prompts from server:
| password
| Password:
Enter in my password. That screen displays: End of keyboard-interactive prompts from server And I get a popup: Server refused to start a shell/command

I am using:
