A question regarding file transfer loggin in OpenSSH

Hi all,


We are using ssh for file transfer through SCP and SFTP in a FreeBSD box,
and it works fine as expected. But from some days ago the customers are
requesting the logs of the transmissions, and we’ve just realized that the
sshd daemon doesn’t log the files copied to our server nor the downloaded


I’ve tried with all the debug levels of the sshd daemon, but nothing. It
logs a lot of messages in /var/log/ssh.log, but it doesn’t log the file


Could you please help us for logging these file transfers?


Thanks a lot and best regards,



Jose Vallés
