    Yeah,

    so, My one server runs fedora 1, I enabled shell on my account through cpanel, and it should have access to jailed shell. But, after I send my password through for authentication, it closes the window real quick like, any suggestions?

    Sound like a configuration problem with your jailed shells. I have never doen jailed shells so I can't help you much with that.

    Also check your /etc/passwd file to make sure a default shell is set for your user.

    Another idea would be to check your sshd_config file. Check to see if you are using the AllowGroups setting. If you are, then your user has to be in that group in the /etc/groups file.
