rsync & scponlyc shell: not working


hello

I'm trying to do rsync over ssh. My users use the scponlyc shell (which chroots them into their home directory.

If the user has a shell like /bin/bash then the rsync works perfectly.

However, when their shell is scponlyc, then the rsync doesn't work:

Quote:
root@pi testuser # rsync -e ssh -vvvvvv -alnz /tmp/ testuser@mercury.iskm.com:/iskm/data/testuser/test/
cmd=ssh machine=mercury.iskm.com user=testuser path=/iskm/data/testuser/test/
cmd=ssh -l testuser mercury.iskm.com rsync --server -vvvvvvnlogDtprz . /iskm/data/testuser/test/
opening connection using ssh -l testuser mercury.iskm.com rsync --server -vvvvvvnlogDtprz . /iskm/data/testuser/test/
testuser@mercury.iskm.com's password:
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [sender]
_exit_cleanup(code=12, file=io.c, line=359): entered
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(359)
_exit_cleanup(code=12, file=io.c, line=359): about to call exit(12)
the log below shows that the rsync daemon DID recognise the rsync request.:
Quote:
Mar 5 20:52:35 pi [30878]: running: /usr/bin/rsync --server -vvvvvvnlogDtprz . /iskm/data/testuser/test/ (username: testuser(1020), IP/port: 10.0.0.1 59188 22)
Mar 5 20:52:35 pi [30878]: failed: /usr/bin/rsync --server -vvvvvvnlogDtprz . /iskm/data/testuser/test/ with error No such file or directory(2) (username: testuser(1020), IP/port: 10.0.0.1 59188 22)
What could the problem be? The chrooted environment has the binaries which it should need:
Quote:
root@pi testuser # lsl bin/
total 436K
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 50K Mar 15 2004 busybox

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 219K Mar 5 20:45 rsync
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 56K Mar 15 2004 scp
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 92K Mar 15 2004 sftp-server
does anyone have any suggestions as to the cause of this problem?

Many thanks

Hey

I didn't get scponlyc working, instead I just used the regular jail/chrooted environment. This is probably more specific to the problem.

Dont know if you found the answer to this but i just had the same issue and got round it.

You need to copy rsync into the chroot i put it in bin/ (the same as in your post i just noticed now)

Then specify the path to it such as this:

rsync -av --rsync-path=/bin/rsync USER@DOMAIN:REMOTEPATH LOCALPATH

Hey

got it fixed.

the solution was really obvious and I should have noticed. Once i has set the user to be jailed in home directory using scponlyc, the users home directory become "/" (ie the root partition), and not "/home/user"

Thus, the remote path is alwasy /

sorry, I should have posted this earlier.
