I would like to configure lshell that only an upload with scp is possible and afterwards no download is possible. I would also like to set own file permissions on the uploaded file (umask or forced permission).
Is that possible?
lshell doesn't allow you to force the permission of a file upon upload. I will work on this for a future release.
I will try to work on the implementing scp_upload and scp_download flags to allow or forbid respectively uploading or downloading files via SCP. Thank you for this idea! :)
You can already configure this by adding 'scp -f' and 'scp -r -f' in the "forbidden" field of the configuration file.
Hope this helps you out.
Thanks a lot for this suggestion. I will try it soon. I can't find in the manpage the -f option for scp. What's that for?
An other way to solve to upload-only request is to set rx permission for the user on the upload directory.
ls -ld upload
d-wx---- 2 batch ssh-user 51 Mar 5 16:07 upload
For the umask request I found no workaround so far.
Sorry cut&paste from a "ls" output don't work in this editor (message above).
sf.net interface messes up the output… I got it right by email ;)
Thank you for this suggestion!
Sorry, I made a mistake in testing the permission "300" on the upload directory isn't working as I tought. I will try your suggestions with the scp options but I can't find a description for the "-f" option.
Do you mean such an entry:
scp : 1
This is exactly what I meant.
These flags are not documented in the scp man page. I'm not sure why..
Tell me if this works out well for you.
It does not work unfortunately. I can download (scp) previously upload files.
What version of lshell are you using?
lshell-0.9.8 - Limited Shell
Sorry for the delay in my answer.
It seems it is not possible to do this with the current versions of lshell.
I will try work on this this week, and implement scp_onlyupload / scp_onlydownload.
I'll keep you posted.
ghantoos, do you have news to this topic? .. Retep
As I have been swamped for the past weeks (and the upcoming one..), I did not find the time to code on lshell.
I will try working on this in a week or so.
No Problem, thanks for the update .. Retep
A new version of lshell (0.9.12) was released adding this feature.
thanks for your work. The feature "forbid scp download" is working fine. Can I also set a specific umask?
Greetings .. Retep (holidays until 21.06 :-)
I am glad the feature is working well. Thank you for your idea. :)
I will be quite swamped this month. I will try to work on this as soon as possible.
