Then man page for sshd_config lists all the possible values

Specifically I'm running CopSSH (Cygwin/OpenSSH) on a Windows
workstation. I want to log failed connection attempts to a file, not the
windows event system. How do I do it?


They specify what 'facility' or category the generated syslog entries are
sent as. It is a syslog thing. man syslog.conf for more info.


I'm running the daemon in Cygwin as a service. By default
SysLogFacility is set to AUTH which sends the log to the windows event
system. I want it in an actual text file that I can analyze with a shell
script. Will one of those settings do that?
