In my post boot script I added:

echo “backup:x:50003:100::/backup:” >> /etc/passwd
echo “AllowUsers admin backup” >> /etc/ssh/sshd_config
/etc/init.d/sshd stop
/etc/init.d/sshd start

That will help, thanks! I can use this same method for a lot of other settings changes.

for instance,
iptraf wants to save it’s settings in a file, but the directory doesn’t exist, so this will create the directory it needs:

mkdir /var/local/iptraf

(of course, the iptraf.cfg file itself doesn’t carry over, but that’s ok for now)

For copying files, here’s how I temporarily mount a usb flash drive as another filesystem. My zeroshell boots from a IDE hard drive. I used this to export some tcpdump files that I collected.

I plug in the USB drive.
then, from the ssh admin login, or the Shell prompt on the console,
dmesg | more

I get this information at the end of the dmesg entries:

So, it is /dev/sda1 in this case. ( “sda: sda1”)

mkdir /usbtmp
mount /dev/sda1 /usbtmp
copy files to or from the usb drive at /usbtmp.
cd /
umount /usbtmp
