Use the SSH screen to configure SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP). SFTP is available by enabling SSH remote access to the TrueNAS system.


SSH Service Screen Settings

General Options

TCP PortOpen a port for SSH connection requests. Enter the port number.
Log in as Root with PasswordSelect to allow root logins. Root logins are discouraged! A password must be set for the root user account.
Allow Password AuthenticationSelect to allow password authentication. Enabling allows SSH login authentication using a password. Warning: when directory services are enabled, this setting grants access to all users the directory service imported. When disabled, authentication requires keys for all users (requires additional SSH client and server setup).
Allow Kerberos AuthenticationSelect to allow kerberos authentication. Ensure valid entries exist in Directory Services > Kerberos Realms and Directory Services > Kerberos Keytabs and the system can communicate with the kerberos domain controller before enabling this option.
Allow TCP Port ForwardingSelect to let users bypass firewall restrictions using the SSH port forwarding feature.
