PAM Integration with FileZilla

#1 Post by baskee3288 » 2020-10-29 20:32

I have integrated the Filezila with Thycotic Secret Server (PAM Solution). We have a feature called proxy. Using which, PAM system allows the user to connect with Filezila using proxied credentials. Not with the actual onboarded account.

Winscp also had a same issue, but able to resolve by changing its default settings of Shell from Default to /bin/bash. After saving this as default settings, we able to successfully launch the proxied connection from our pam solution. Can someone help me with similar configuration here in Filezilla as well?

Attaching the screenshot for your reference.

Unlike WinSCP, FileZilla supports only SFTP, not the whole SSH2. As such, FileZilla doesn't support any shells at all. So, there are no settings for shell.

Why don't you connect directly to the target machine?
