Re: How to restrict ssh user to the home directory ?



Dear list,

thanks a lot for all your kind  guidance. I really grateful to you for focusing on different aspects of restricting ssh user.
I have found limited shell or lshell is closer to my requirement. As it is based on python it is heavy on the system but it is not so lengthy to configure like chroot. More over chroot demands "chown root:root <homedir>"  and it is not possible here as these home dirs are actually apache webfolders under htdocs hence these should have apache user:group as permission.

So lshell seems work for me.

Thanks once again.
