Create a user with ssh_tunnel_shell as default shell

  • Hi,

    I want to create a linux user called "jump", which uses the "ssh_tunnel_shell" for default shell to use pfSense as SSH Jumphost to access the LXCs behind.
    I created the user with shell command "adduser", works fine, but after reboot the user will be deleted.

    If I create a user with the pfSense webinterface and change the default shell to "ssh_tunnel_shell" it also will be reset on reboot.

    Is there a possability to create a jumphost user?

    Make the user under System > User Manager, save, then edit the user and give them the "User - System: SSH Tunneling" privilege and nothing else.

  • So easy?!

    -.- And I found nothing on the web.
    Thanks a lot.
