Thanks Nigel, but for me the problem continues.
When I try ssh to a FC2, I have the follow logs:

Jun 15 13:48:06 server sshd(pam_unix)[12980]: check pass; user unknown
Jun 15 13:48:06 server sshd(pam_unix)[12980]: authentication failure; logname= uid=0
euid=0 tty=NODEVssh ruser= rhost=

Jun 15 13:49:57 server sshd[12985]: Illegal user brunostella from ::ffff:
Jun 15 13:50:04 server sshd[12985]: Failed password for illegal user brunostella from
::ffff: port 33200 ssh2

And I note that I was wrong when said in some email ago that the user was accept.

Any more help ?
