lsh [OPTION...] HOST [COMMAND]
CAUTION! The information in this manpage may be invalid or outdated. For authorative information on lsh, please see it's Texinfo manual (see the SEE ALSO section). Connects to the the remote machine HOST, and perform one or more actions, i.e. command execution, various forwarding services. The default action is to start a remote interactive shell or execute a given command on the remote machine.
--capture-to=File When a new hostkey is received, append an ACL expressing trust in the key. In sloppy mode, the default is ~/.lsh/captured_keys. --dh-keyexchange Enable DH support (default, unless SRP is being used). --host-db=Filename By default, ~/.lsh/host-acls -i, --identity=Identity key Use this key to authenticate. --no-dh-keyexchange Disable DH support. --no-publickey Don't try publickey user authentication. --no-srp-keyexchange Disable experimental SRP support (default). --publickey Try publickey user authentication (default). --sloppy-host-authentication Allow untrusted hostkeys. --srp-keyexchange Enable experimental SRP support. --strict-host-authentication Never, never, ever trust an unknown hostkey. (default) --debug Print huge amounts of debug information --log-file=File name Append messages to this file. -q, --quiet Suppress all warnings and diagnostic messages --trace Detailed trace -v, --verbose Verbose diagnostic messages Algorithm selection: -c, --crypto=Algorithm --hostkey-algorithm=Algorithm --list-algorithms List supported algorithms. -m, --mac=Algorithm -z, --compression[=Algorithm] Default is zlib. --askpass=Program Program to use for reading passwords. Should be an absolute filename. -l, --user=User name Login as this user. -p, --port=Port Connect to this port. Actions: -B, --background Put process into the background. Implies -N. -D, --forward-socks[=port] Enable socks dynamic forwarding -E, --execute=command Execute a command on the remote machine -L, --forward-local-port=local-port:target-host:target-port -N, --nop No operation (suppresses the default action, which is to spawn a remote shell) --subsystem=subsystem-name Connect to given subsystem. Implies --no-pty. -S, --shell=command Spawn a remote shell Universal not: -n, --no Inverts the effect of the next modifier Modifiers that apply to port forwarding: -g, --remote-peers Allow remote access to forwarded ports --no-remote-peers Disallow remote access to forwarded ports (default). Modifiers that apply to remote execution: --detach Detach from terminal at session end. --no-detach Do not detach session at end, wait for all open channels (default). --no-pty Don't request a remote pty. --no-stderr Redirect stderr to /dev/null --no-stdin Redirect stdin from /dev/null --no-stdout Redirect stdout to /dev/null --stderr=Filename Redirect stderr --stdin=Filename Redirect stdin --stdout=Filename Redirect stdout -t, --pty Request a remote pty (default). Miscellaneous options: -e, --escape-char=Character Escape char. `none' means disable. Default is to use `~' if we have a tty, otherwise none. --write-pid Make -B write the pid of the backgrounded process to stdout. -G, --gateway Setup a local gateway -R, --forward-remote-port=remote-port:target-host:target-port --no-x11-forward Disable X11 forwarding (default). -x, --x11-forward Enable X11 forwarding. -?, --help Give this help list --usage Give a short usage message -V, --version Print program version
$HOME/.lsh/captured_keys is the default file used for storing keys captured when connecting to hosts with keys not previously accepted (see the --capture-to option). $HOME/.lsh/host_acls is the default file containing accepted keys (see the --host-db option). $HOME/.lsh/identity is the key file lsh attempts to use by default (see the --identity option).
See the --verbose , --trace and --debug options.
