Rsshd_config.xml Server Settings File
Beginning in version 7.0, server settings are saved to the rsshd_config.xml file. You should use only the Reflection SSH Server console to change server settings. (In earlier versions it was possible, and sometimes necessary, to edit the sshd2_config file in order to enable specific server settings.) In version 7.x, all keywords supported by the server can be edited in the Reflection SSH Server console.
Note: It is useful to save copies of rsshd_config.xml for backup, to configure other servers, and to quickly compare the settings of one server with another. It is possible to view the rsshd_config.xml file in a browser or an editor of your choice; however, editing the file outside of the Reflection SSH Server console is not recommended.
The rsshd_config.xml file location depends on the operating system.
Windows Server 2008 or 2012:
Windows Server 2003:
Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Attachmate\RSecureServer\rsshd_config.xml
Because all of the keywords are created and edited by the Reflection SSH Server console, allowed values are best viewed in that application.
The following sample rsshd_config.xml file shows some of the keywords that may be listed in a server configuration file. It is not an exhaustive list because not all keywords are initially visible in the .xml file; keywords whose default values have not been modified may not appear in the .xml file.
Use the Reflection SSH Server console to edit your rsshd_config.xml file.
