How to replace build-in SSHD?

Recommended Posts



DSM 6.1.5

I would like to replace integrated sshd server (ver 6.8) by installing latest from Entware/Optware which is ver 7.6 ?

after opkg install openssh-server it is installed but not being picked up by system. there is still old version running.


synoservicectl --restart sshd  starts old version again which is in /usr/bin/sshd, optware installs it in /opt/...

tried to replace /usr/bin/sshd executable with new one - it doesnt start at all.


maybe i'm going wrong direction and shall run it aside? ideas? where is startup script btw? thanks

finally I just have two sshd running on different ports. one from dsm, another - from entware.

`/opt/etc/init.d/S40sshd start` starts service and it starts up after reboot as well
