sshd_config error Bad configuration option: PermitLocalCommand
I am having a problem with sshd_config. I am trying to implement PermitLocalCommand and LocalCommand. I have updated my config file with this:
Match Group vms
But when I try to execute I get these error messages:
/usr/sbin/sshd -f /etc/ssh/vms_config
/etc/ssh/vms_config: line 29: Bad configuration option: PermitLocalCommand
/etc/ssh/vms_config: line 30: Bad configuration option: LocalCommand
/etc/ssh/vms_config: terminating, 2 bad configuration options
These options are in the man page as valid. It fails on my Fedora 13, raspbian ( Debian ) and with the latest source ( OpenSSH_6.0p1 Debian-3, OpenSSL 1.0.1c 10 May 2012 ).
Do I need to compile the source with some special option??
What were you looking for? Maybe there is another way to reach the results you intended.
What I need to do is limit the number of connection made by a SFTP user. I have tried many ways that don't completely work. I need a way to run a script when the user logs in. I have the script but I can't figure a way to call it other than tailing /var/log/messages for 'Accepted password for user'. Which will work but then there is the log rotate problem. I really don't want to modify SFTP.
You can run a script on successful login either in /etc/ssh/sshrc or in ~/.ssh/rc It can't be allowed to produce any output to stdout, though.
If you run sshd under xinetd instead of as a daemon, you can limit the number per ip address using per_source. It's not the same a limiting per user, but close. Maybe you could have the script check how many times the user is logged in already and drop the connection if the max is exceeded.
