LXer: Using scponly To Allow SCP/SFTP Logins And Disable SSH Logins On Debian Squeeze

Published at LXer:

scponly is an alternate shell that restricts users to SCP and SFTP logins, but disallows SSH logins. It is a wrapper to the OpenSSH suite of applications. With the help of scponly, you can allow your users to use clients such as WinSCP or FileZilla to upload/download files, but you refuse SSH logins (e.g. with PuTTY) so that your users cannot execute files/programs. This tutorial shows how to install and use scponly on Debian Squeeze.
