SSH Protocol 1 based systems are facing many automated “root kits”.
As a result to step up the security Protcol 2 should be enabled as soon as possible.
The reason to use SSH Protocol 2 on your dedicated webserver is that it is more secure.
1. Login to your dedicated server via SSH as root.
2. Type: pico -w /etc/ssh/sshd_config
If pico is not installed and you receive an error Install PICO
3. Find the line: #Protocol 2, 1
Uncomment it and change it to look like:
4. CTRL+X then y then enter to save the file.
5. Now Restart SSH with
Type: /etc/rc.d/init.d/sshd restart
(If the above restart does not work you will need to login to WHM as root
and restart the service.)
