Specifying the maximum number of SFTP connections

To specify the maximum number of SFTP connections, you can use the sftp.max_connections option. By default, the maximum number of FTP connections is 15.

About this task

The maximum number of connections cannot exceed 15. Furthermore, the maximum number of SSH connections is reduced by the maximum number of SFTP connections.

Step

  1. Enter the following command: options sftp.max_connections n

    n is the maximum number of SFTP connections from 0 to 15.

    If you set the sftp.max_connections option to a value that is less than the current number of SFTP connections, Data ONTAP refuses new connections until the number falls below the new maximum. Data ONTAP does not interrupt existing SFTP connections.
