NAME

     sftp-server - SFTP server subsystem

SYNOPSIS

     sftp-server [-f log_facility] [-l log_level]

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:

     -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.

     -l log_level
             Specifies which messages will be logged by sftp-server.  The
             possible values are: SILENT, 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 debugging output.  The default is ERROR.
