Starting the Server
When SSH Tectia Server has been installed from binaries, the server daemon and its
certificate validation daemon are started automatically after
installation and at boot time.
If the server needs to be started, stopped, or restarted manually, the
start script can be used. If command-line options need to be used (for
example, for debugging or to read in an alternate configuration file),
the server can be started from the installation directory.
Using the Start Script
To start the
sshd2 daemon type the following command:
If the server is already running and you want to restart it, for
example, to use a changed configuration file, type the following
- On Linux and Solaris:
# /etc/init.d/sshd2 restart
- On HP-UX:
# /sbin/init.d/sshd2 restart
- On AIX:
# /etc/ssh2/sshd2 restart
If you want to use command-line options with
you have to start them in their installation directory.
The server daemon can be started by running the command:
# /usr/local/sbin/sshd2 [options]
Note: If the installation was successfully completed,
is a symbolic link to
sshd2. If you also have Secure Shell 1.x
installed, the SSH Tectia Server installation process modifies the existing link. If
Secure Shell v1 compatibility is desired,
sshd2 can be configured
sshd1 when the client only supports Secure Shell v1.
However, it is recommended to use the
sshd2 command because
sshd may start an OpenSSH server.
The certificate validation daemon can be started by running the command:
# /usr/local/sbin/ssh-certd [options]
