Client and Server Configuration in Solaris Secure Shell

The characteristics of a Solaris Secure Shell session are controlled by configuration files. The configuration files can be overridden to a certain degree by options on the command line.

Client Configuration in Solaris Secure Shell

In most cases, the client-side characteristics of a Solaris Secure Shell session are governed by the system-wide configuration file, /etc/ssh/ssh_config. The settings in the ssh_config file can be overridden by the user's configuration file, ~/.ssh/config. In addition, the user can override both configuration files on the command line.

The settings in the server's /etc/ssh/sshd_config file determine which client requests are permitted by the server. For a list of server configuration settings, see Keywords in Solaris Secure Shell. For detailed information, see the sshd_config(4) man page.

The keywords in the client configuration file are listed in Keywords in Solaris Secure Shell. If the keyword has a default value, the value is given. These keywords are described in detail in the ssh(1), scp(1), sftp(1), and ssh_config(4) man pages. For a list of keywords in alphabetical order and their equivalent command-line overrides, see Table 20-8.

Server Configuration in Solaris Secure Shell

The server-side characteristics of a Solaris Secure Shell session are governed by the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file. The keywords in the server configuration file are listed in Keywords in Solaris Secure Shell. If the keyword has a default value, the value is given. For a full description of the keywords, see the sshd_config(4) man page.
