NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for sftp-server (netbsd section 8)

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

NAME
     sftp-server -- SFTP server subsystem

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

DESCRIPTION
     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 option.

     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, LOCAL0, LOCAL1, LOCAL2, LOCAL3, LOCAL4,
	     LOCAL5, LOCAL6, LOCAL7.  The default is AUTH.

     -h      Displays sftp-server usage information.

     -l log_level
	     Specifies which messages will be logged by sftp-server.  The possible 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 debug-
	     ging 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.
