Hi Folks

I have installed SSH so many times on CentOS 6.5 servers and they all run perfectly. The difference with my latest server is that I've left the Gnome interface running and the server is running in runlevel 5.

I have edited the sshd_config file to permit root login and have selected a specific port to run on i.e. 112.

I have disabled IP Tables and, as far as I am aware, SELinux is not running on the server although I'm not 100% certain of that.

When I type:
# service sshd restart I always get "Failed" first for the stop and then OK for the start.

If I do a ps -ax | grep ssh I get:

  2357 ?        S      0:00 /usr/bin/ck-xinit-session /usr/bin/ssh-agent /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients
 2590 ?        Ss     0:00 /usr/bin/ssh-agent /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients
14698 pts/1    S+     0:00 grep ssh

Can anyone tell me where I'm going wrong?

All the best
