ssh "LocalCommand" won't work


Hi @all,

i try to use the LocalCommand feature from openssh.

this is my ~/.ssh/config

Code:
PermitLocalCommand yes
#LocalCommand rsync -e ssh %d/testfile %r@%n:testfile
Login via PublicKey works, and the rsync also works alone, but if i activate this and try to login ssh hangs.

some ideas?

Are you saying that you are unable to use rcp, scp or sftp, right?
To any other remote system or just the particular one?

Hmm, what a particular reason of using that LocalCommand feature?
Is there any workaround to bypass or replace it, in other words, what are you trying to accomplish?

But that's scp made for:

Code:
SCP(1)                    BSD General Commands Manual                   SCP(1)

NAME
     scp -- secure copy (remote file copy program)

SYNOPSIS
     scp [-12346BCpqrv] [-c cipher] [-F ssh_config] [-i identity_file]
         [-l limit] [-o ssh_option] [-P port] [-S program]
         [[user@]host1:]file1 ... [[user@]host2:]file2
And you said that scp works fine, right?

no, scp copies the file if the file have changed or not, rsync is better...
and scp is also not working in localcommand...

all commands like rsync,scp ... working with the same parameters from the shell but not in LocalCommand

Won’t your current setup create an endless loop? You first login successfully, as a result you want to execute in localcommand an rsync which uses another ssh. Hence it will connect again... So it must be avoided for future invocations:
Code:
PermitLocalCommand yes
LocalCommand rsync -e "ssh -o permitlocalcommand=no" %d/testfile %r@%n:testfile
