IF you HUP the sshd daemon, will it knock off current users?
whatever

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.

Hi Dev,

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