FTP does not work.


Hi,
We have HPUX server and this might not be the right place to post this issue. Please help me if you have solution for this .

The default shell for users in NIS is set to /usr/bin/csh. ., they are not able to do FTP. They can logon and continue with their work,but ftp does not work.
When I check at log, I see the message as 'BAD SHELL'.
However if I change it back to /sbin/sh., everything looks okay.
Do I have to make changes to make ftp work with csh.

Cheers,
Abhinesh

Add /usr/bin/csh to /etc/shells
