Description Petri T. Koistinen 2002-10-18 14:39:47 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.79 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.18-14 i686; Nav)

Description of problem:
In default /etc/ssh/sshd_config it says:

SyslogFacility AUTHPRIV

When I type 'man sshd_config' and then type '/SyslogFacility' I see following


Gives the facility code that is used when logging messages from sshd.  The
possible values are: DAEMON, USER, AUTH, LOCAL0, LOCAL1, LOCAL2, LOCAL3, LOCAL4,
LOCAL5, LOCAL6, LOCAL7.  The default is AUTH.


So according man page, AUTHPRIV is impossible value.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config file.
2. Think. ;-)
3. Read man page.

Actual Results:  Configuration file and man page are not equal.

Expected Results:  Options that are presend in default configuration file should
be documented in man page.

The man page comes from openssh; assigning back there.
Comment 2 Tomas Mraz 2005-05-25 04:19:33 EDT
It will be fixed in the next rawhide build.
