sftp-server

SFTP server subsystem 

Command


SYNOPSIS

sftp-server [-ehR] [-f log_facility] [-l log_level] [-u umask]


DESCRIPTION

sftp-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 secshd using the Subsystem option. See secshd for more information.

Options

-e 

Causes sftp-server to print logging information to stderr instead of syslog for debugging.

-f log_facility 

Specifies the facility code that is used when logging messages from sftp-server. The possible values are: DAEMON, USER, AUTH, LOCAL0, LOCAL1, LOCAL2, LOCAL3, LOCAL4, LOCAL5, LOCAL6, and LOCAL7. The default is AUTH.

-h 

Displays sftp-server usage information.

-l log_level 

Specifies which messages are logged by sftp-server. 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.

-R 

Places this instance of sftp-server into a read-only mode. Attempts to open files for writing, as well as other operations that change the state of the filesystem, will be denied.

-u umask 

Sets an explicit umask to be applied to newly-created files and directories, instead of the user's default mask.
