SFTP and blogger

Just a hint for anyone setting up a hosted blog via the blogger platform.

You will likely need to modify your /etc/ssh/sshd_config file...or else you will be unable to publish to your sftp site.

The change you need to make is:

PasswordAuthentication yes

It's likely already set to "no".

I was getting this error while trying to publish to a hosted blog to my domain and was seeing an error in my ssh log that read:
Did not receive identification string from [google ip addr]

So yea, I hope that helps anyone who needs it.
