SSH Secure File Transfer Client connection failed in rbash


I created a user named allen and changed its shell to rbash.
then set his environment like this
Code:
# .bash_profile

# Get the aliases and functions
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
        . ~/.bashrc
fi

# User specific environment and startup programs

unset PATH

PATH=$PATH:/home/allen/bin

export PATH
then only copy /bin/su to /home/allen/bin

and I can login with SSH Secure Shell Client by this user but can't with SSH Secure File Transfer Client

below is the server log at /var/log/secure


Mar 6 01:58:08 localhost sshd[18049]: Accepted password for allen from 10.0.1.6 port 44205 ssh2
Mar 6 01:58:08 localhost sshd[18049]: pam_unix(sshd:session): session opened for user allen by (uid=0)
Mar 6 01:58:08 localhost sshd[18051]: subsystem request for sftp
Mar 6 01:58:08 localhost sshd[18049]: pam_unix(sshd:session): session closed for user allen

belw is the error log at client side

Exit value 1 was returned.Most likely the sftp-server is not in the path of the user on the server-side.
anyone can give me a hand

I suggest you search LQ for "ssh" in combination with "scponly" or "rssh". Most likely you'll find related threads in the Linux Security forum. If you search for "rbash" you might find some reasons why using it doesn't provide you with much more in terms of security and flexibility.
