rbash (does not exist)

Hi,

I need to setup a user so that he cannot traverse directories. I would like to use rbash however it does not appear to exist on the server. How can I get around this.

Cheers

Re: rbash (does not exist)

Shalom,

Restricted shell should be called rsh, not rbash.

Try that.

Make sure the user can link to the utils that are needed such as ls.

On linux there is no rsh. rsh is actually remote shell.

Re: rbash (does not exist)

create the rbash with:

ln -s /bin/bash /bin/rbash

and then specify rbash as the default shell for a user:
usermod -s /bin/rbash


Regards.
