Canot SCP to Checkpoint firewall

Posted: February 20, 2014 in CheckPoint

When you SCP to Checkpoint SPLAT firewall and get the error “lost connection”, this is what you may see

To resolve this do the following

1. make sure the admin shell has been changed from /bin/cpshell to /bin/bash

chsh admin
Changing shell for admin.
New shell [/bin/cpshell]: /bin/bash
Shell changed.

2. create a new file “touch /etc/scpusers”

3. edit the file and add the users you want to allow for scp

more /etc/scpusers

4. restart the ssh service ( I did not have to restart and it just worked)

service sshd restart
