Ubuntu Servers :: Allow Users Access Via SSH Terminal Or Sftp Via WinSCP?

Jun 6, 2010

I am currently running Ubuntu Server 9.10 as an FTP server. It has become a necessity to allow users access via SSH terminal or sftp via WinSCP. I need to be able to monitor what users are doing at any given time and be able to pull up each users activity history. Essentially I need to be able to pinpoint who modified a file at what time. Also what is the best method to monitor things like nmap probes?

Server :: SFTP User Adding For VSFTPD?

Oct 24, 2010

I just installed Wordpress and i am delighted of it, nice peace of software. Even so I have to get running a FTP or SFTP server on my localhost machine. I did installed in my Ubuntu 10.10 the VSFTPD server and generated a RSA certificate file (vsftpd.pem). Strange it is that there is no vsftpd folder under /etc, instead vsftpd.conf file is directly into /etc ... so I have generated also my .pem file into /etc. Anyway I have a lot of trouble adding new users to access this server. I use Filezilla as SFTP client. Please let me know if you encountered such an issue, and what is the solution for it. Downwards is my vsftpd.conf file.

# Example config file /etc/vsftpd.conf
# The default compiled in settings are fairly paranoid. This sample file
# loosens things up a bit, to make the ftp daemon more usable.

CentOS 5 Server :: Vsftpd Not Being Recognized By Sftp

May 20, 2010

I set up my vsftpd server, but when using "sftp servername" it's not using vsftpd but another (what seems like) built-in sftp server. Even when I stop the vsftpd service I am still able to get a prompt to log in. I haven't installed any other ftp servers.

Ubuntu :: Sftp Force Permissions On Upload?

Mar 17, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Using sftp, is there any way to force particular file permissions upon upload? I want the permissions on all files uploaded via sftp to be 664.

I've searched around and cannot find an answer. Many people ask similar questions and many responses recommend using umask, but as far as I understand it, umask is just a bit mask--it cannot be used to set permissions.

General :: Connect To An SFTP Server From A Windows Machine To A SFTP Server Using A DSA Key?

Jul 24, 2011

As a Windows user, I generated a pair of DSA keys from CoreFTP Lite and sent it to a third party that runs an SFTP server. They told me that a valid DSA key needs to have ssh-dsa at the start and the username@systemname at the end. CoreFTP generated neither the ssh-dsa header nor the username@systemname footer. I tried with WinSCP and it didn't generate them either. Is there a difference between how SFTP works between Windows and Linux? If I put a useraccount@systemname at the end of the text will it work? How would the Linux system validate that my system is called "systemname"? If it can't validate, what is the purpose of adding it?

Server :: Dump All Users To The Same Sftp Starting Directory?

Jul 7, 2010

Using CentOS 5.5. I have a handful of users that I need to have connect to my server via sftp and start in the same directory. for example, user1, user2, user3, etc.. will connect via sftp and upon connection will all be in the /some/dir/path/ftp-root directory.I know one way is to create these users all with the same 'home' directory, since by default a user starts in their home directory when connecting via sftp, but before just doing that, I wanted to find out if that is really the appropriate method to use? alternatives? Is there some setting on the sftp server end that could direct all users to one starting directory so that these users don't have to have the same 'home' dir? I'm using the sshd daemon that comes with CentOS 5.5 (with all current updates/patches)

Ubuntu Servers :: How To Setup SFTP In A Chroot

Aug 13, 2010

I'm wanting to setup SFTP in a chroot, which is simply enough to do and I already have it working; however I also want it so that when they connect via SFTP it goes directly to their home directory. Currently I have the following in "/etc/ssh/sshd_config":


Subsystem sftp internal-sftp
Match Group sftp-users
ChrootDirectory /home
AllowTCPForwarding no
ForceCommand internal-sftp

Which works perfectly fine, however when they connect there are shown the contents of the "/home" directory which they then have to "cd username" to get to their home directory. This I do not like, and it confuses our clients who connect saying they can see "random folders that aren't mine", or some that think they've "hacked" the server. I really need it so upon connection they go to "username" directory. I can do this by using:


usermod -d /username username

Which changes the users home directory to "/username", and then upon connection it works just fine, they are taken directory to their home directory. However, I really really do not like the fact that "/etc/passwd" shows a different home directory to their real home directory, i.e it states "/username" when actually it is "/home/username".I've spent the entire day looking a different ways of doing it, and I can't come up with anything.

Fedora Servers :: 9 - ACl And Chrooted SFTP

Mar 17, 2009

i'm on 9, x86_64, and have successfully created chrooted SFTp users following this [URL] tutorial. however, i need to get into the sftp account programmatically to move and delete the deposited files. so i enabled ACL and set setfacl -R -m u:$USER:rwx,d:u:$USER:rwx /home/$SFTPUSER

this works well EXCEPT that now the sftp user cannot log in. the latter, of course, is the problem at hand! it's driving me crazy. as soon as i remove the acl and revert back to the plain old chmod/chown scheme, the sftp user can log in ... but i can't delete files in the sftp account. i tried to set facl to the sftp group ('jailed') but to no avail.

Fedora Servers :: Get ChrootDirectory Working With SFTP?

Jul 21, 2011

I'm trying to get ChrootDirectory working with SFTP. I understand the chroot directory is not writable by the user, so I have to create a sub-directory the user is supposed to write to. I keeping getting write permission denied when uploading a file to this sub directory? how to troubleshoot this or know what i'm doing wrong? Here's how I have it setup.

Fedora 15, OpenSSH 5.6p1

/etc/ssh/sshd_config looks like this


Subsystem sftp internal-sftp
Match Group sftp
ChrootDirectory %h


I created the sftp group and created a test user.


groupadd sftp
useradd -g sftp -s /bin/false -d /home/test test

Then gave root access to the test user's home directory so chroot will work.


chown root:root /home/test
chmod 755 /home/test

Since the user's home directory is the chroot directory, the user will not have write access to it. So I created a sub-directory that the user will have write access to.


mkdir /home/test/data
chown test:test /home/test/data
chmod 755 /home/test/data

I can successfully sftp into the server and download files. But I cannot upload files to the data directory? I get write permission denied.

Ubuntu Servers :: 9.04 Jaunty Hangs While Sftp Is Active And Dynamic IP Changes?

Feb 1, 2010

I have this strange problem which I am unable to web search on and not sure what to do next. My Linux knowledge is between basic to intermediate but I know how to troubleshoot general hardware problems.

My problem is that Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty 64-bit hangs while SFTP is active and dynamic IP changes. For example, I SFTP into my home server and transfer file then suddenly my ISP decides to renew my IP and give me a new IP while my SFTP client is still uploading files to my home server. This causes my SFTP client to stop working. Upon checking, my router is still running with a new IP lease from my ISP. My Linux box still powers on but typing anything from the keyboard does not make it "wake up" and put things on the monitor. Nothing seems to make it respond and the only way is to get about it is to power off and on. During that time, you cannot SSH into the server as there is no respond. SFTP into the server is not possible too because connection fails.

The server has all new hardware, latest BIOS, etc. Memtest86 shows no errors after running for more then 5 hours. I am unable to find anything out of the norm in /var/log/kern.log or in dmesg. All hardware seems to be working.

When I think about it, I tend to think OpenSSH (probably that is the default package in Jaunty) is causing this system hang whenever there is an interrupted connection from the outside world. However, I fail to agree with this is because I am sure the daemon and Linux can tolerate this situation without resorting to system hang. FYI, I have installed vsftp as well but this should not be a problem.

Ubuntu Servers :: Authentication Methods Over Network Shares And SFTP

Feb 15, 2010

I run some IT systems for my schools Engineering student organization.

We are upgrading our systems and I just purchased a new server system which I am configuring.

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx and the new likewise-open packages.

The points I bring up following this sentence are to fulfill this final goal : Get SFTP, SSH, and Network Share's over our private network all using the schools Active Directory for auth and it's groups to derive privs.

So... Here's what i've done and what i've tried to do.

1 ) I set up likewise-open and got it to join the domain. When I do this I can ssh to localhost as 'schoolnetworkADname'. So that part works (hurray). To get a network share to use these same auth methods I have tried installing likewise-open-server. Everything launches find and the daemons run, but when I go into computer management on a windows server to set up the actual shares, I get permission denied. The account it is giving permission denied to is the same AD account that join likewise-open to the network, so... what is going on.

2 ) Samba, fail. I can't seem to get samba to run on this machine at all, which is strange because even my Samba expert was puzzled. It just won't let Samba join the domain properly, and due to this, I want to keep on the newer likewise package... unless I have to switch to this.

How I can get the lame likewise-open-server to work?

Ubuntu Servers :: Setup Ssh/sftp/network Shares All Authenticating With AD?

I need to set up ssh/sftp/network shares all authenticating with AD. I want to use likewise to do the auth, but to mount the network shares I need to use an older version of samba so it can connect with likewise.How can I go about installing an older version of samba onto this new distro of the OS? I've tried installing the lenny and etch versions but I always get an error during install just saying that samba errored.
