Re: [suse-security] rcsshd reload

You can savely use "rcsshd restart" even when you are logged on via ssh. The 
only thing what will happen is, that the parent-sshd ist killed and startet 
again. All the child-processes it spawned before stay alive until these 
sessions will be ended by their users.  New ssh-logins will be spawned of the 
new parent-sshd.

I don't habe a SuSE 8.2 box at hand, but have yourself a look at 
/etc/init.d/sshd. /usr/sbin/rcsshd is a symbolik link to this script on a 
On a 8.1 reload causes sending a HUP-signal to the ssh daemon process which 
should make every daemon reload its config (if it's implemented as it should 
be). A "restart" does run a "stop" following a "start". "stop" will send a 
TERM-signal to the daemon which will terminate it.
