I am reading Implementing SSH, Strategies for Optimizing the Secure Shell by Himanshu Dwivedi. After giving an overview of the sshd_config file, he starts talking about the sshd2_config file. I cannot find this file, and I am not exactly sure what he is talking about. I am attaching some excerpts from the book to give you guys an idea of what I am talking about. First let me say that, I asked this question on a different forum and someone said basically, that sshd2_config does not exist. I respectfully disagree because I don't think the author would bring it up. Please click on individual attachments and let me know what you think. Any Help would be greatly appreciated.



thanks again

I run openssh-server on my server, I don't have an sshd2_config in /etc/ssh:

The above is a listing of the directory

The author of the book is probably talking about ssh which is different from the version used on Ubuntu.

ok, i think I can answer my own question. As I read on, I realized that, he is talking about 3 different server options. OpenSSH, SSH Communications’ SSH Server, and VanDyke Softare’s VSHell SSH server. I am using OpenSSH, that is why the sshd2_config file is not there.

I will let users post any additional input before I close this in the next few days.
