#4834 reopened Bug report

filezilla does not work with UNIX systems where the user accounts shell is set to "rssh"

Reported by: Matt Weatherford Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: rssh, osx, linux, shell Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Linux
Operating system version: x32 Linux, OS X 10.6

Description

"rssh" is a ssh-only shell that should work with any SFTP implementation... from the man page:

rssh is a restricted shell for providing limited access to a host via ssh(1), allowing a user whose shell is configured to rssh to use one or more of the command(s) scp(1), sftp(1) cvs(1), rdist(1), and rsync(1), and only those commands. It is intended primarily to work with OpenSSH (see http://www.openssh.com), but may work with other implementations.

When I connect to a linux host (Ubunutu HH 8.04 LTS x86-32)
from a Mac OS X or Linux x32 client using Filezilla client,
if the user I connect as has the shell set to "bash" - everything
works properly.

If I connect to the same user again, having changed the shell to "rssh", it fails. See output below: (first is succssful, bash-shell connect, second is failed rssh-shell connect)

I have verified this on OS X and Linux x32 Filezilla client.

Thanks for a great product & stay free! :)

P.S. there is a misspelling as well: initialise should be "initialize" unless you are a Brit.... ;)

Actually proper English is always British, American is just a bastardised dialect of English. ;)
The SFTP support in FileZilla is based on PuTTY, which has been created by a team from Cambridge.

Can you please attach a log with debug level 3 to three in the settings dialog?

Also, please try the latest development snapshot of psftp from http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html

I would also like this to be fixed.
