@NickW Thanks for pointing that out, although I did find the actual issue I didn't notice this.

comment Is there a shell to change password when connecting over SSH?
@lain I wouldn't do it if I don't have to. This is not about being dodgy, but it's going to require their current password anyway, and the other services do not all allow for PKA either way. This is all just for filesharing among users on a forum, no big deal.

@etagenklo There is a password for the user in it and it is exactly the same as the root password

Well thought, but still not quite what I'm looking for, because I'd have to teach my users how to convert their private keys and how to use them. Still +1 for a very good answer!

@etagenklo I tried logging in to bash and ran passwd again, but this seems to be a problem with passwd and not using it as a shell, because it doesn't work for normal users from bash either. Any suggestions?

True, I've also just thought of binding SSHD to a different IP address which I use for private stuff (So all services except FTP seem closed). I don't think I want to let them change password then, it's not essential, and I wouldn't mind managing these 40-50 users manually when that's all I have to do. After all, the users are from a hacking forum, I believe they are smart enough to remember their passwords :)

@etagenklo Mine reports Authentication token manipulation error regardless of wether the password is correct or not. Interesting. Which OS are you using for this?

Hmm, I might try installing webmin and usermin again, I've used it before. Using a different shell just seems like a far more lightweight solution, so I'm still looking for that.

@Andrew No I have tried connecting with Filezilla using FTP requiring explicit SSL. I also tried disabling SSL to no avail. I decided to wipe my VM and install Debian instead, and now it works perfectly fine with the same configuration. Odd
