sftp-server is a program that speaks the server side of SFTP protocol to stdout and expects client requests from stdin. sftp-server is not intended to be called directly, but from sshd(8) using the Subsystem option.
Command-line flags to sftp-server should be specified in the Subsystem declaration. See sshd_config5 for more information.
Valid options are:
Care must be taken when using this feature to ensure that requests made implicitly by SFTP clients are permitted.
On some systems, sftp-server must be able to access /dev/log for logging to work, and use of sftp-server in a chroot configuration therefore requires that syslogd(8) establish a logging socket inside the chroot directory.
