Install the Advanced Server Access server agent

The Advanced Server Access server agent (sftd) is a daemon that runs on your servers and integrates with the Advanced Server Access platform.

The server agent configures client certificate authentication for SSH and RDP, audits login events to the server, and manages local user accounts.

To deploy an Advanced Server Access server, you must install the agent on the server and then enroll the server. See Supported operating systems.

The system requirements necessary to run the Advanced Server Access server agent are minimal. If a server can run one of the supported operating systems and has available storage for logs, then it can successfully run the server agent.
