Adding limited new user to allow viewing of status screens.
ssh newuser@localhost -i keyfile.ppk = "ssh: Exited: String too long" error
Even generated new key using dropbearkey.
ssh working for root, key only access, same key.
New user created using tomatousb.org/tut:adding-your-own-users. Fails ssh create home directory and .profile. Manual creation of home and .profile and copy of root password in /etc/shadow to /etc/shadow.custom allows new user to login at ssh/telnet prompt with no password?. Fails to allow login on web interface. Asus RT-N16 Shibby 110.
Heres the line's to create the user from the tutorial, altered for private key.
chmod 777 /tmp/home ssh -i keyfile.ppk $UNAM@localhost "mkdir /home/$UNAM;touch /home/$UNAM/.profile && echo success" # press return for the password prompt, you should see the word "success" reported chmod 755 /tmp/home
Some reading about dropbearconvert does not seem to be the solution here.
Thanks for any assistance.
