Is it possible to run sshd as a regular process rather
than a service?
I'm OK not seeing the GUI most of the time (I'm launching
my application after logging over ssh, the application does
some processing and then quits). However, if something goes
wrong I would be happy to stop sshd service, launch sshd
as a regular process, rerun the application and _see_ what
You can run it as yourself in a terminal if you prefer.
You cannot switch back and forth between running it as a
service and running it in a terminal unless you run it as
yourself in both circumstances. 'sshd' will not be able
to switch user context unless you add privileges for your
account, which adds to security concerns. FWIW, I have
not tried doing this so there may be other bumps along
the way. And this is not a method of operation supported
by this list. But if you're game, give it a shot.
