SFTP-SERVER(8)		  BSD System Manager's Manual		SFTP-SERVER(8)

     sftp-server — SFTP server subsystem

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

     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 sshd(8) using the Subsystem

     Command-line flags to sftp-server should be specified in the Subsystem
     declaration.  See sshd_config(5) for more information.

     Valid options are:

     -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,
	     The default is AUTH.

     -h	     Displays sftp-server usage information.

     -l log_level
	     Specifies which messages will be logged by sftp-server.  The pos‐
	     sible 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(2) to be applied to newly-created files
	     and directories, instead of the user's default mask.

     For logging to work, sftp-server must be able to access /dev/log.	Use of
     sftp-server in a chroot configuration therefore requires that syslogd(8)
     establish a logging socket inside the chroot directory.

     filexfer-00.txt, January 2001, work in progress material.

     sftp-server first appeared in OpenBSD 2.8.
