Hello all,

I'm noticing that when following the directions given here:


For how to disable logins, the recommended action is to set the shell to /sbin/nologin.

However, this is sloppy as it allows the user to log in, get the motd, do everything short of getting a shell.

I've tried starring out the password in the +::::::::: entry, (and putting in a "bad" password, like x), and those don't seem to work. I am still able to connect via sshd and prove that the account works.

What's happening here?



<Wrin> quick, somebody tell me the moon phase please?
