Security FAQ

Can I Secure Shell (SSH) into the system? What about SFTP and SCP?

By default the secure platform disables all remote login via SSH and as a by-product SFTP and SCP. This is done through the /etc/hosts.deny and /etc/hosts.allow files. In the hosts.deny file you will see an entry that says “ALL:ALL”. This basically blocks all SSH access to the system. Each site will require a different configuration, so contact your network administrator on how to configure your secure Telestra. Although not recommended, you can comment out the ALL:ALL entry to allow access from anywhere.
