SSH-DUMMY-SHELL(1) SSH2 SSH-DUMMY-SHELL(1) NAME ssh-dummy-shell - Ultimately restricted shell SYNOPSIS ssh-dummy-shell [-c sftp-shell] DESCRIPTION ssh-dummy-shell is used to provide access to systems where only file transfer functionality is permitted. Users with file-transfer-only access can have ssh-dummy-shell as their user shell. When executed without any parameters, the program waits for the user to press any key and exit. The only way to execute programs with ssh-dummy-shell is to give them as command-line parameters with the -c option. Even then, sft-server-g3 is the only allowed com- mand. OPTIONS -c command The parameter is executed as a shell command. Only the sftp-server command is allowed. Any other com- mand causes ssh-dummy-shell to exit immediately. RETURN STATUS ssh-dummy-shell returns the return value of the given com- mand. If no command is given, 0 will be returned on exit. FILES /opt/tectia/etc/ssh_dummy_shell.out Contains the message that is shown to the user when ssh-dummy-shell is executed without any parameters.
