Synopsis: sshd_flags='-d' causes errors
State-Changed-When: Wed Jun 1 09:19:04 GMT 2005
This is a documented feature of sshd(8). Note the following from the sshd
-d Debug mode. The server sends verbose debug output to the system
log, and does not put itself in the background. The server also
will not fork and will only process one connection. This option
is only intended for debugging for the server. Multiple -d
options increase the debugging level. Maximum is 3.
It's arguable that sshd would benefit from the separation of "increase log
debugging" and "don't fork" debugging features, but this is a feature request
that should be submitted to the OpenSSH maintainers, as we import OpenSSH
from them .
