Remote SSH Not connecting

I’ve updated to the latest version. However this was previously an issue before updating. I was going to wait until I was granted the update before reporting.

Here’s the issue. Connecting to a remote returns the following error.

print_install_results_and_exit 0

[Trace  - 19:19:30.635] Server install command stderr:
limitedshell: line 1: /usr/bin/bash: Permission denied

[Trace  - 19:19:30.635] Server install command stdout:
[Error  - 19:19:30.635] Error resolving authority
Error: Failed parsing install script output
	at t.installCodeServer (/Applications/
	at process.processTicksAndRejections (node:internal/process/task_queues:95:5)
	at async /Applications/

However, one thing to note is that my bash path is /bin/bash not usr/bin/bash. Not sure if this is the root cause but I can’t figure out how to address this issue.

Also if I just ssh directly in the terminal I have no issues connecting so I’m sure it’s not the key.

What version of Cursor are you using? 0.13.2 had a SSH fix. You can check in “Help” => “About”:


Don’t think this will be solved by the new update; looks like a separate problem hmm Seems like the problem is the script doesn’t have access to /usr/bin/bash. Do you have anything special going on with permissions there?

@truell20 Thanks for the reply. Nothing different with permissions. However, There isnt a usr/bin/bash on my machine. My bash bath is /bin/bash not usr/bin/bash.
