Okay, I don't have any gui installed so I'm at a loss :-)
I'm not sure how to do this, but I've managed to chroot meh users to their own stuff. However I'd still like them to be able to access tar and other such utilities while keeping them in their little sand box. I know my question is kinda broad, but I'm not even sure what to google for as I've already tried and not had much luck. Its an RH9 box. thx for any help
First thing you gotta do is dump that RH9 box and get Debian installed. :wink:
But seriously, are you chrooting the FTP session or the SSH session or both?
just the ssh session, by default users can only see their own files under their home dir.
Another thing, I do this all the time through the gui, in fact I can picture it in my head. I'm just unfamiliar with the CLI commands to do the same thing. :oops:
Then you have to put them in the chrooted jail.
use ldd to find out the dependencies of the executable that you want the users to use, then just copy them over, making sure to preserve the dir structure.
Hope that helps.

thx, now I can give ri0t some more stuff to break.
Well, I chroot everyone I give SSH logins too, but it doesn't do them any good if all they can do is traverse directories ;-)
give me gtar or give me death!
No problem Dan. Glad it helped.
