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.

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