When I create users in SSH using adduser (freebsd 5.3) for some reason that user is then able to login and get an unlimited access account to cpanel.

If i add user bob in ssh, and he goes to port 2082 and tries to login, this is what he will see

Eeek, any suggestions?

I want to have users who have ssh accounts, but have NO cpanel access, I dont even want cpanel involved with these accounts.

There's really no way around it as far as I'm aware. The cPanel system itself basically takes over your server when installed and you need to live with its ways, or live without it. Alternatively, you could try submitting a feature request, but I somehow don't think you'll get very much demand for such a feature.

Create a new template that has nothing in it and give your ssh-only account that template.

# cd /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend
# mkdir sshonly
# cd sshonly
# echo "Access Denied" > index.html

Now give your user the sshonly template

# cd /var/cpanel/users
# echo RS=sshonly > USERID (where USERID = username in passwd file)

I tested this, it works great.
