My device is an RUT950 with Product code "RUT950M02XXX" and firmware version "RUT9_R_00.07.03.4" (latest as at today).

I have enabled access via ssh (see attached screenshot of Access Control) and also telnet and cli. When I attempt to ssh from a host on the LAN:

ssh -l admin 192.168.10.3

it fails with 

Permission denied, please try again

and in the (services) log I get:

Sun Mar  5 12:55:41 2023 authpriv.warn dropbear[24402]: User 'admin' has invalid shell, rejected

Alternatively, when I try telnet from the same host (with the correct password) it fails with

Connection closed by foreign host.

whereas with the correct password it fails with:

Login incorrect

and invites another login attempt.

Similarly, when I try CLI I get:



mobile3.local login: admin

Password:

Session closed.

I am confident that I am using the correct password. The problem appears to be an "invalid shell" per the log message. What should I do?

Hello,

For ssh, cli and telnet the user is root not admin:

ssh -l root 192.168.10.3
