Editing Configuration Files

The default location for the configuration files is /opt/tectia/etc. You can edit the sshd2_config and ssh_certd_config files via the Tectia SSH Assistant or with your favorite text editor.

The configuration files consist of keyword-value pairs, one per line. Lines starting with the hash character (#) as well as empty lines are interpreted as comments and ignored. The configuration file is read when the server is started and each time a new connection to the server is made. If the configuration file is faulty or cannot be found, the server will not start.

For a complete list of configuration options, see sshd2_config(5) and ssh_certd_config(5).
