Can anyone tell me what is the SSH command to show/list all user accounts that having on a VPS or a dedicated server? Basically, I wanted to see all logins that can access the box via SSH.

Code:
cat /etc/passwd | egrep '(bash|jailshell)'
This will give you a list of accounts that have bash or jailedshell access, you can add other types of shell to the command.

I tried to run this command and it works as well not only for Centos but Ubuntu

root@vps150207:~# cat /etc/passwd | egrep '(bash|jailshell)'
root:x:0:0:root:/root:/bin/bash
ubuntu:x:1000:1000:Ubuntu:/home/ubuntu:/bin/bash

Thanks for sharing!
