NAME

sshproxy-setup - sshproxy configurator

 

SYNOPSIS

sshproxy-setup [--config-dir cfgdir] [--user user]
    Display a menu to edit configuration.

sshproxy-setup [--config-dir cfgdir] [--user user] --add-admin admin
    Add an administrator to sshproxyd(8) database.

sshproxy-setup [--config-dir cfgdir] [--user user] --cipher cipher [--keep] [--dry-run]
    Recipher the site database with a new cipher.

 

DESCRIPTION

sshproxy-setup is a front-end to configure the sshproxyd daemon.

If no other options than --config-dir and --user are given, sshproxy-setup will show a menu allowing the administrator to edit the sshproxy.ini main configuration file.

 

OPTIONS

--version

Show program's version number and exit.

--help (-h)

Display a short help message.

--config-dir (-c)

Specify a configuration directory where lies the main configuration file sshproxy.ini and the private DSA private key id_dsa. Default value is ~/.sshproxy.

--user (-u)

Give configuration files ownership to user. This option is mandatory if sshproxyd(8) is run as root.

--add-admin

Add a new admin in the database. This works by first adding a new user in the client database, then it adds a few ACL rules in the ACL database for the new admin to be able to connect to the sshproxyd(8) console with unlimited rights. This is not the way to add users!

--cipher

Recipher the site database with a new cipher engine. Reciphering from blowfish to blowfish is not supported, so you may want to recipher to base64 first, then to blowfish. The cipher engine can be one of plain, base64 or blowfish.

--keep (-k) (applies to --cipher only)

When reciphering to blowfish, don't ask for a passphrase but use the one already present in sshproxy.ini(5).

--dry-run (-n) (applies to --cipher only)

When reciphering, don't do anything but displays passwords (old cipher / plain / new cipher). Useful when developping a new cipher engine.

 

FILES

~/.sshproxy/sshproxy.ini

The main configuration file. See sshproxy.ini for further details.

 

ENVIRONMENT

SSHPROXY_CONFIG
If non-null the full path to the configuration directory. Equivalent to the -c option.

INITD_STARTUP
The command to restart the proxy. sshproxy-setup will display this command at exit to recall the administrator how to restart sshproxyd(8). Mainly useful when running sshproxy-setup in the postinstall hook of a distribution package.

 

BUGS

None known.
