I am running a remote suse server and need to give ssh access to the users who can work on their particular web folder only. The version of ssh server is openssh-5.0p1-21.1It should be entirely possible in openssh. I've done a similar thing with sftp (but that was sftp specific and not openssh really).I have already did huge google search but could not find any sshd features which can allow ssh users to restrict them in their home directory. I have found some documentations where chroot or jailkit is used to achieve this andthese need some more configuration and obviously "chown root:root <home-folder>" . But I need an option which simply restrict ssh users so that they can't browse beyond their home directory. It is also not possible to do "chown root:root <home-folder>" as the folders which are used as home directory are actually web folder under apache htdocs having apache permission. I don't need sftp but ssh access. Is it really impossible to have this feature through ssh technology
OpenSSH can support chrooting, in which case you simply follow the std chroot methods. I'm not sure if it's an integrated compile time option or if it's a 3rd party patch, but it is an integrated compile time option on Gentoo systems, so worst case scenario if you are working with another distro, would be to patch the source and compile yourself to get this to work.
