Re: documentation for security ssf-settings
Me too.. I had some problems recently trying to secure a connection, do
not know why but I had to set all of them to 256, lower number gave
errors of "..stronger something needed.." taking a look at the logs I
saw that most to the connection were "established ssf=256", so, I tried
that number and worked out, but hate guessing, and less when security is
involved, the man page is clear, but how can I know if I need 65, 112,
128 or whatever?
For what I read about which ssf to use for a specific connection , you
have to to use ACL's, I found some examples in the documentation.
