Would you allow a this on your shared server?

Would you allow on your shared hosting server some one to have access to SSH to set up up a custom port (say 38910) on the firewall to run the rsync deamon?

My thought is it isn’t worth the risk, am I to protective? I would like to hear what others would have to say about this issue that own and operate shared IW servers.

I don’t know how I feel about giving users access to SSH in general. So I would have to agree with you with “it isn’t worth the risk”.
