A couple other important items with SSH:

 

* change the port from the standard SSH port 22 to a port up in the user ports area or close to it. It has an added benefit of not filling the log file with SSH port 22 bombardments as well as making it safer.

* disable root logins on SSH extremely important - you can always sudo or su as needed once you are logged in

Absolutely, but since I had been using ssh for a while already, I had taken care of those items way back. :)

Yep, I figured you had Eric, but since others would be reading this, I thought it would be good to mention it and link to howtos.
