SSH communication with an agentless target computer in Control Compliance Suite 10.5
The agentless infrastructure uses SSH protocol to communicate with the Information Server. The agentless architecture supports two versions of SSH protocol, namely, SSHv1 and SSHv2. The infrastructure can use either of the protocols for communication. The SSH communication timeout period is configured through a registry setting HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\BindView\bv-Control for UNIX\SSH Connector]/ConnectionTimeout.
The default timeout period is 180,000 milliseconds and it can be configured to any value by modifying the registry setting.
WARNING: Incorrect use of the Windows registry editor may prevent the operating system from functioning properly. Great care should be taken when making changes to a Windows registry. Registry modifications should only be carried-out by persons that are experienced in the use of the registry editor application. It is recommended that a complete backup of the registry and workstation be made before making any registry changes.
The default SSH port for establishing communication is 22, which can also be configured through the sshd_config.conf file. The sshd_config.conf file is located in the /etc/ssh/ directory of the UNIX target computer.
