To start SSH Tectia Server in debug mode, follow these instructions:
Stop the server, if it is currently running. Use the start-stop script described in Starting and Stopping the Server:
Start the server executable by entering the following command with root privileges:
# /opt/tectia/sbin/ssh-server-g3 -D
In the command:
filter is an expression that takes the
"module=level,module=level,...". In case you
define a filter with several modules, list the modules in increasing levels
of detail (highest level last).
module is an optional expression. It can be used to
restrict the debug output to only a particular module or to allow the use of
varying debug levels for different modules.
level is an integer from 0 (no debug info) to 99 that
specifies the desired amount of debug information.
Note that levels 1-9 are the recommended debug levels. The higher the number, the more detailed the troubleshooting output will be, and the more the debugging will affect performance.
The following example command starts the server with a global debug level 4 and outputs the debug information to the screen:
# /opt/tectia/sbin/ssh-server-g3 -D4
The following example command starts the server listening on port 777,
using only 1 servant process, and using filters to display level 2 output
from everything else, but level 4 output from modules starting with
"SecShServer". The debug output is redirected to file
# /opt/tectia/sbin/ssh-server-g3 -l 777 -n 1 -D"2,SecShServer*=4" 2>&1 \ >server.log &
To view all options available for
the following command:
# ssh-server-g3 -h
