tcsh with ftp

Solaris2.7.
I installed tcsh and non of the logins who use it can ftp between my computers. (rc 530)
When I put csh in a login on a machine and try to ftp to that machine  using that login - it works.
What do I have to do in order to ftp with tcsh?

You need to create a /etc/shells file and list tcsh as well as the other shells in it. Mine looks like:

/sbin/sh
/sbin/bash
/sbin/jsh
/bin/sh
/bin/csh
/bin/ksh
/bin/jsh
/bin/bash
/bin/tcsh
/bin/true

Yeah, I know /bin/true isn't a shell but I use it for email/ftp only accounts.

How do they try to ftp in tcsh and csh?  is the path to the ftp command set in .tcshrc or .cshrc?

For ozo... it's the ftp daemon on Solaris that has to know how to find the shell.
