    adduser access denied ? Please Help !!

    lo all.
    Just wondering if anyone could please help me.

    When I add a user using shell all seems fine however when i try to login to that shell account I get access denied.

    I have checked the sshd_config and the user and group has been added to that yet I still can't login

    I'm running FC4

    Any help would be much appreciated
    TIA

    What shell is the newly created user being assigned? It may be getting set to something like /sbin/nologin, or a similar command. Thus, you'll need to assign the user an actual shell.

    Did you set a password for the users?

    yeah I did...

    It's getting worse too as users are getting limited control in shell and an inability to run even the simplest commands.

    I think the issues are due to the kernel compile I did as other things are starting to get a little weird too.

    EDIT: Can't spell
