How to start ssh daemon

Postby a129878 » 16 Mar 2010, 16:23

What is the prefered way to auto start the sshd.
Uncomment the inetd.conf
sshd_enable in rc.conf.

What is the difference, is there any ?

[FILE]sshd_enable="YES"[/FILE] in the [FILE]/etc/rc.conf[/FILE]

[CMD=" "]/etc/rc.d/sshd start[/CMD]

It's the better way :)

From [man=8]sshd[/man]:
-i Specifies that sshd is being run from inetd(8). sshd is normally not run from inetd because it needs to generate the server key before it can respond to the client, and this may take tens of seconds. Clients would have to wait too long if the key was regenerated every time. However, with small key sizes (e.g. 512) using sshd from inetd may be feasible.

In short, start sshd as a daemon. Forget about inetd.
