Re: Kill -HUP sshd

If you HUP only the main sshd process it will NOT. It just rereads the config file. However if you HUP a child sshd which actually carries the user connection, yes it will terminate.
I do not reply to forumers who 1) consistently don't assign points, 2) ask for step-by-step instructions for a topic but appear to have no IT experience and make no effort to learn. Some exceptions for newcomers and special topics.

Hi Dev,

It will just refresh the configuration file of ssh, but will not kill any session of the current user.
