No, that (generally) won't work. OpenSSH doesn't run your shell if you
request a specific command, and so (generally) the PATH environment
variable is set to a hard-coded default.

['(generally)' because OpenSSH can also obtain the default user path at
runtime from a file, like /etc/login.conf on BSD, or from any GSSAPI
module. So it might work in your configuration.]

You may also be able to create an ~/.ssh/environment file, or add
'environment=' to your authorized_keys file, though both depend upon the
PermitUserEnvironment option being on, which it's not by default.

There's also ~/.ssh/rc (and a system-wide variant), but I don't think
that's actually sourced, so it wouldn't be able to affect the environment.

Incidentally, the </div> tag is misplaced for that FAQ entry.

Malcolm
