When I don't have permission or log in with a wrong password ssh prints "Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-keyex,gssapi-with-mic)."

Is there a way to configure SSH on the server to not emit anything?

The error message is not from the server but from the client. You can suppress those messages with the -q option, like

ssh -q mvaldez@wintermute

    I believe putting LogLevel QUIET into ssh_config will accomplish the same thing without requiring the use of a command line switch on every invocation.

  • You are right, the LogLevel option can do the same thing (in global ssh_config or personal .ssh/config).
