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

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	in-
     tended to be called directly, but from sshd(8) using the Subsystem	op-
     tion.

     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 pos-
	     sible values are: QUIET, FATAL, ERROR, INFO, VERBOSE, DEBUG, DE-
	     BUG1, 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.
