Is there an rssh server RPM or SRPM available for Fedora 8 on any of the repos?
I originally posted this topic in the "General" forum but this forum felt like a more appropriate place.
I've only been able to find the SRPM and source tar-ball at http://www.pizzashack.org/rssh/
. I downloaded the SRPM but was hoping to find it in one of the Fedora repos. Also, there doesn't appear to have been any development on this for over 2 years. If the project is maintained elsewhere or there is a better alternative, would someone let me know?
I need to allow only VNC tunnelling through SSH (NO file transfers) for certain users over one interface but unrestricted ssh for other users on both interfaces of a gateway machine. I figure I can configure both rsshd and sshd to run together on different ports to allow use of restricted ssh for some users and unrestricted ssh for others.
We use MIndTerm (Java SSH) client on our Windoze boxes and openssh on Linux. I've tested VNC tunneling Win<->F8 and RHEL4/RHL9<->F8 using DSA key pairs and it works well. The problem is that this also gives them access to a shell. I cannot permit file transfers over these tunnels, only RFB (VNC) streams. I figure using RSSH to a chrooted environment with no scp sftp available would meet our needs.
Thanks for any pointers or suggestions.
