    sshd logfile specification


    Hi,

    where can i specify the sshd logfile ? sshd.conf lets me configure the debug level, but not the file. Manpages give no hint. What is the standard logfile for sshd ?

    Thanks

    the manpages for ssh_conf don't give the command for specifying the logfile, only the debug level (?)

    Please look for the sshd_config file not the ssh_conf file....!!!!! These are two different files....

    SyslogFacility somehow refers to syslog, and apparently the destination of these AUTH messages is specified in /etc/syslog/syslog.conf, but i didnt find an exact description of it.
