Installing an SSH and SCP server on Linux

For SSH, ensure sshd is already running. It can be administered by using the # chkconfig sshd on command.

To use the SCP transfer mode, BMC Network Automation requires a local user account that has shell access (shell set to /bin/bash or other working shell), and has read/write access to the directory specified as the SCP transfer directory in the device agent configuration.
