Configuring listeners for SSH

For a host to be accessible via SSH, clients must connect to the host using the IP address and port of an SSH listener.

To configure a host to be accessible via SSH:

  1. From the top menu, select Server > Listeners. The Listeners page opens.
  2. Click the IP address of the listener you want to open. The Edit Listener page opens.
  3. Under Hosts Associated with this Listener, verify that the host you want to be accessible via SSH is listed. If it is not, add the host before proceeding to the next step. Fore more information, see Associating a Host with a Listener.
  4. By default, the SSH listener uses a SSH host key that WS_FTP Server generates when you install the program. This key is unique to your server. For information on how to change this key, see Selecting an SSH Host Key.
