sharumpe/sshd — version 1.0.2 Nov 21st 2015


This module is intended to perform the "most common" settings for sshd.

This is provided as-is, YMMV. If you're in Vagrant, make sure to include at least "sshd" in the services.


Use a group called "sshaccess" to limit ssh logins:

class { 'sshd' :
  accessGroup: 'sshaccess',

Add a local user to the group: (both are equivalent)

sshd:allowedUser{ 'vagrant' : }

sshd:allowedUser{ 'vagrant' :
  name   => 'vagrant',

Add a domain user to the group:

sshd::allowedUser{ 'domuser' :
  name   => 'domuser',
  domain => 'DOMAIN',


If you send email, please include "sharumpe-sshd" in the subject line.
