Re: Problem with scp and SSH on Arch Linux



Caught this message and I am currently wondering why a /bin/false'ed
passwd file should allow a scp to get in the host and attempt the
copy.

Bern, could you please help me understand this?

Thanks in advance,
gb.-

please look in your /etc/passwd file and check, if the required user has a
working shell (last entry on the line) and not /bin/false.

If the shell is not there please enter

usermod -s /bin/bash <username>

So long

Bernd
