I really don't think it's an sshd problem, at this point. She's got other (many other?) users who have no trouble; it's just these three, which is why I'm strongly leaning towards them having Web Expression on their workstations misconfigured.



After speaking with the webmaster there are a total of 7 people who have been allowed to continue accessing their sites via expression web - all others have to now submit modification requests to the webmaster for her to make the changes for them.
Of those 7 people (jadams, cathy, lyrong, guo, Hassan, Randall, Patrick) at the beginning of all of this only 2 could not log in and both were getting a different error message (jadams and randall) and 1 additional person was having a problem but it was with uploading files (hassan).
I have been able to confirm that cathy and lyrong can log in and am still waiting to hear back from Patrick.
Cathy just let me know, that now instead of it prompting her for her login credentials - when she opens expression web it just logged her straight in. This is weird as I set everything back on the sshd_config file after following those instructions I mentioned to Alfred and receiving the error message. So the only other thing I have done is install the setroubleshoot unless I am forgetting something we have discussed for me to try.
