I’m trying to create an account that doesn’t have shell access to the server and can be used solely for transferring files via ftp. I’ve been in chat and they recommended RSSH… i’ve installed this and ran the following commands:
useradd test passwd test usermod -s /usr/bin/rssh test
now when i login to shell it says:
Last login: Tue Jun 4 20:48:39 2013 from 18.104.22.168 /usr/bin/rssh: Permission denied Connection to 22.214.171.124 closed.
So i’ve logged back in as root, edited the config file: vi /etc/rssh.conf, uncommented allowsftp, saved the file…
When i try to login using my SFTP client (Transmit) i’m getting: The user name or password was not accepted by the server.
Where have i gone wrong?
