Creating New OpenSSH Configurations

You can create new configuration files from scratch or copy-paste and edit the configuration settings in the OpenSSH configuration view. Tectia Manager has preset views for the OpenSSH client and server configurations.

  1. On the OpenSSH tab, select which configuration you want to work on (client or server), and use the Create new button to open the edit view.

  2. Define a descriptive name for the configuration file, and an optional description.

  3. Enter the entire configuration file contents in the Config file field.

    To re-use an existing configuration, use the Browse option to find the file, and click Upload to fetch the contents for editing.


    Check the validity of the configuration carefully, as faulty settings may stop the OpenSSH client and server from running!

    The configuration will be deployed to the hosts as is.

  4. Save the configuration and proceed to assign it to relevant hosts.


If the re-configuration of the service fails upon configuration update, the Management Agent reverts back to the previous version of the configuration. The reverting may take several minutes.
