    Hi and welcome to the forum!

    To edit the sshd_config file you need to be the root user. Use the following
    su -
    to become root. I don't think Knoppix has a root password if you're running it as a liveCD, but it will if you installed it.

    Once the sshd_config is the way you like it, make sure to (re)start the server. The command is probably something like the following (and has to be run as root),
    /etc/init.d/sshd restart
    This command is different on different distros, so you should look it up first.

    Good luck.
