No shell access - permissions


I need to configure an account without shell access but user needs to have FTPS - SCP - FTP access so I've done this

useradd -s /sbin/nologin useraccount
passwd useraccount
cool no shell access but user cannot access FTPS - SCP - FTP...what else I need to configure to allow user to use those others?

thanks a lot

Hi, you need a valid login shell to use SCP / SFTP.

To restrict user to scp and sftp take a look to scponly this may help you i think.
