sshd-check-conf - Checks what the configuration allows or denies based on
the incoming user and/or the host name
sshd-check-conf [-d debug_level] [-v] [-V] [-h] [-f config_file] [[user@]
Debugs the server. The debugging level is either a number or a comma-
separated list of assignments.
-v Enables the verbose mode, and displays verbose debugging messages.
-V Displays the version string.
-h Displays a short help file on command-line options.
Specifies the name of the configuration file. The default is
/etc/ssh2/sshd2_config or $HOME/.ssh2/sshd2_config, depending on who is
running the program, root or normal user.
The sshd-check-conf command checks how the sshd2 daemon will react to an
incoming user, based on the user name and the remote host name given as
parameters. The following parameters are checked:
Any nonoptions presented on the command line will be regarded as
[user@]host patterns (that is, the user part is optional). If the host
part is a valid IP address, it is looked up from DNS. Otherwise, it is
interpreted as a host name, and the corresponding IP addresses will be
queried from DNS.
You can specify multiple patterns on the command line.
If no patterns are specified on the command line, sshd-check-conf will go
into interactive mode, where the patterns can be given one at a time, and
they will be checked. The dump command can be used in interactive mode.
This command dumps the configuration (with subconfigurations amended) for
the previous pattern given.
