ssh Deny users & hosts - any risk to control panel / doctl?

New Ubuntu 20.04 droplet from Rails one-click.

Have developer accounts set up, belonging to secondary group sshaccess, ssh keys working.

I would like to ‘AllowUsers dev1 dev2’ in the sshd_config.

My interpretation is that this will block connections from all except the designated users, and support to connect only from’s jump box.

I also want to add some ufw rules that will restrict ssh connections to ones originating from our dev laptops and the support jumpbox.

Does any of this disrupt the browser control panel or doctl?

Hi @stonebreaker,

What you have mentioned you wanted to achieve shouldn’t disturb your WebConsole for your Droplet. Having said that, I’m not sure about the API-doctl. It’s possible it won’t interfere with it, but I would test it out just to be sure if I was you.

Having said that, I’m 100% sure any of the changes you mentioned won’t interfere with the WebConsole in any way!
