[ILUG] does scp need a shell?

I've got a script periodically scp'ing squid log files off a proxy for
backup purposes. This is working fine but it would be better if the
account on the proxy server did not have a login shell since it does not
serve any other purpose - I tried setting it to a nonexistant shell or
true/false but scp just exits without copying anything.
So I'm thinking it requires some kind of login shell; would somthing
like rbash do the trick or could I lock it down even further with a
script that only allows the scp command to be executed?
