    Is it possible to add another user then root for the ssh login?
    I'm using Tomato G v1.01.0918.

    Is there a way to change the Welcome text when logging on the ssh?

    Hi snajgel,
    within the WebGUI its not possible. Maybe you have to edit the configuration for dropbear (if its possible?). I think we have to wait till an expert answer this :biggrin:.

    I don't think it is possible as I have been looking at doing this as well for basic backup remote access for if my SSL VPN fails instead of using openssh on my PC but there does not seem to be anyway of adding another user to the router that I think from reading various things on the web about ssh would be required for this to work. But if anybody knows different please, please, please post how to do this....

    on the default tomato its not possible cuz the tomato's busybox does not include adduser functionality and stuff. you might wanna try experimenting with the full busybox(google for it) though it takes up quite abit of space. the batbox version might include it too though i've not tried

    AFAIK it's not possible because the kernel is compiled with support for single user only... you need an additional program to manage user lists / passwords.
