    rssh questions... searh = 0 results..

    I am setting up a web server and want to allow clients to access their directories via restricted terminal and ftp...

    Idealy, they will be jailed to thier home directory for both forms of access. I have vsftp setup with chroot so it works fine, but ther terminal access is a bit trickier.

    Client user directories are in /var/www/html/USERNAME

    I have installed the newest rssh following some online tutorials and eddited the rssh.conf file to include the line:


    022 is the value returned from umask when logged in as the test user...

    I also set the shell for the test user to /usr/bin/rssh by running:

    usermod -s /usr/bin/rssh test_user

    Now, when I try to login with putty, the connection just closes once I put the password in.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
