I'm trying to go failed (either incorrect username, password, or both) on my server.
I changed /etc/ssh/sshd_config from
# Logging SyslogFacility AUTH LogLevel INFO
# Logging SyslogFacility AUTH LogLevel VERBOSE
and have since tried multiple ssh attempts with both existing and non-exisiting users with random passwords thus failing. When checking /var/log/auth.log nothing appears and it is entirely blank.
What am I missing? Does some other process need to also be install and running on my system? I'm running Ubuntu.
Any help or guidance on this matter is more than welcome.
