NAMEsftp-server - SFTP server subsystem
SYNOPSISsftp-server [-f log_facility ] [-l log_level ] [-u umask ]
DESCRIPTIONsftp-server is a program that speaks the server side of SFTP protocol to stdout and expects client requests from stdin. sftp-server is not intended to be called directly, but from sshd(8) using the Subsystem option.
Command-line flags to sftp-server should be specified in the Subsystem declaration. See sshd_config5 for more information.
Valid options are:
- -f log_facility
- Specifies the facility code that is used when logging messages from . The possible values are: DAEMON, USER, AUTH, LOCAL0, LOCAL1, LOCAL2, LOCAL3, LOCAL4, LOCAL5, LOCAL6, LOCAL7. The default is AUTH.
- -l log_level
- Specifies which messages will be logged by . The possible values are: QUIET, FATAL, ERROR, INFO, VERBOSE, DEBUG, DEBUG1, DEBUG2, and DEBUG3. INFO and VERBOSE log transactions that sftp-server performs on behalf of the client. DEBUG and DEBUG1 are equivalent. DEBUG2 and DEBUG3 each specify higher levels of debugging output. The default is ERROR.
- -u umask
- Sets an explicit umask(2) to be applied to newly-created files and directories, instead of the user's default mask.
For logging to work, sftp-server must be able to access /dev/log Use of sftp-server in a chroot configuration therefore requires that syslogd(8) establish a logging socket inside the chroot directory.
