rssh is a restricted shell for use with OpenSSH, allowing only
sftp. For example, if you have a
server which you only want to allow users to copy files off of via
scp, without providing shell access, you can use
rssh to do that. For a list of platforms on which
rssh is known to work, see the Platform Support Page.
Notice: There are some potentially serious
security implications involved with running
rssh. Please be sure to read about them
in the security section. Note that the
security problems are caused by the login behavior of the OpenSSH
project's sshd, and not by
rssh. OpenSSH 3.5 has been released,
which resolves these issues. I highly recommend you upgrade to
OpenSSH 3.5 or later, and read the security section (see left) if you
want to use
A note about versions: The v2.1 series
is the only series anyone should be running at this point, regardless
of what version you were running before and why you were running that
version. If you're not running v2.1.x, download it now.

I'm debating whether to keep the pizzashack.org domain, so I'm
moving rssh (and all my other projects) onto their respective
spaces on Sourceforge. Sorry for the confusion...

rssh v2.1.0 released today!
This should be the final release of
rssh. I've spent hours testing and
debugging it, and I can't find any more bugs in it, so
hopefully it really will be the last release.
New in this version:
All users should upgrade to this version. This
version contains all of the features which are planned for rssh, and
is the most bug-free release available, as far as I can tell.
- Per-user configurations
- several previously unnoticed/unreported buglets fixed

New rssh mailing list!
I've set up a project for rssh on Sourceforge, and created the new rssh-discuss mailing list. This is where you can post your
questions about building, configuring, and running
