Description Yannick Majoros 2006-02-07 07:49:12 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727)

Description of problem:
My users complained that scp didn't work anymore, from a command line on another linux box to the server on which they have scponly as shell.

I downloaded the lates sources of scponly (4.6), and compiled it. Same problem.

I then recompiled scponly with winscp compatibility option, and the problem was solved.

I think winscp compatibility was enabled by default in prior versions.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a 'test01' user with /usr/bin/scponly as shell
2.From another box, try scp x test01@target.machine:/tmp

Actual Results:  ssh or scp to target server with user which has scponly as shell gives "Connection to target.machine closed."

Expected Results:  should work without having to recompile

Additional info:

When debug level is set to 2:

scponly[22776]: 1 arguments in total.
scponly[22776]:         arg 0 is -scponly
scponly[22776]: opened log at LOG_AUTHPRIV, opts 0x00000029
scponly[22776]: incorrect number of args
Connection to target.machine closed.
