    I guess... Lynx doesn't enable for normal user ( for security reasons ).

    But we can use wget ?!!? to download any files.

    The sites with ssh access unfortunately dont seem to be given a config file for lynx. By disabling ssh access and then enabling it again it changed nothing. I manually moved a copy of the /etc/lynx.cfg file to the /home/virtfs/$username/etc directory and it was fixed immediately. Unfortunately I cant understand why cpanel didnt set it up correctly- I am wondering whether removing /home/virtfs folder for the username if that would cause any harm and whether it would be recreated when ssh access was re-enabled...

    Any ideas would be great.
