lsh-utils for Debian
--------------------

Versions of lsh since 1.3.6 have required a random seed file for both the
server and the client (one for each user in the latter case). These random
seeds will be automatically generated when the lsh-server is started for the
first time.

As an alternative, you can of course use the old way to have the seed
generated. For this you need the lsh-utils package installed. After removing
the automatically generated seed (/var/spool/lsh/yarrow-seed-file) you have to
run "lsh-make-seed --server" (as root) to generate the random seed.

For security reasons (otherwise the timing information will be broken) this
needs to be run from a local console.

Using the lsh-client
--------------------

To use the lsh client, all a user needs to do is run lsh-make-seed and type
the necessary data. lsh-make-seed stores user's random seed files in
~/.lsh/yarrow-seed-file.

By default, the host key is captured to ~/.lsh/captured_keys - you need to put
the appropriate key in ~/.lsh/known_hosts. This is best achieved by:

lsh --sloppy-host-authentication --capture-to=~/.lsh/known_hosts <host>

Some notes about the sftp-server
--------------------------------

The used sftp-server has been placed in /usr/lib/lsh-server, analoguously
with openssh-server. Our manpage is in the special section 8lsh, to avoid
conflict with the corresponding manpage in said package.
