    Ummm... yeah.... that's what's supposed to happen. SSH= Secure SHell = a comand prompt window.

    SSH by itself doesn't do anything. You'll have to type a bunch of commands to do anything, such as getting a file off your local (?) machine into the root directory.

    You can FTP the script into a users file structure, connect via SSH and move it where it needs to be, etc. You can't FTP directly into root via root-user. (nor should you... FTP is all clear-text)

    You shouldn't be running Cast Control as root, create a separate user. If CC is hacked the user would have root access, which we're trying to prevent and put stoppers in.
