Description Gilboa Davara 2011-11-17 10:21:35 EST
Created attachment 534213 [details]
Sample SSHD options support patch.

Description of problem:
Due to security concerns, I've disabled IPv6 on all my workstations.
Due to bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=735889 I must force sshd to bind only to IPv4 in-order to enable X-forwarding.
In F15 adding OPTIONS=-4 to /etc/sysconfig/sshd was enough to disable IPv6 bind.
This OPTIONS support was dropped from the systemd file.
