The comment was based on a 'personal' server for logins.
How 'bout you explain why SCP would break this so the OP understands...
Otherwise, explain why running an FTP session through one of the
server's SSH tunnels wouldn't be equally viable to running an unlimited
number of SCP sessions over normal TCP ;)
