'scponly' is an alternative "shell" of sorts for system administrators who would like to provide access to remote users to both read and write local files without providing any remote execution priviledges. Functionally, it is a wrapper around the ssh suite of applications. It is typically used by creating a user whose shell is set to scponly. This user cannot login interactively or execute commands remotely, but he can use scp to download and upload files to the computer, governed by the usual Unix file permissions.
