PermitRootLogin check is inaccurate

    SOLVED! There is 2 sections with the: PermitRootLogin option. 1 under At=uthentication (at the top) and another way at the botton under the Set this to 'yes' to enable PAM authentication section. Changing that too fixed. Not sure why it didnt accept the first as the second is for PAM access...

    If you have "PermitRootLogin" set in 2 lines the last one is used. In sshd_config there are no "sections", just settings.
