I want to limit an account to a home directory. I am unaware how to do so. Once I connect it displays root access to the drive and I dont want that.


Mac mini, OS X Server

    sftp user@example.com should bring up the login directory for the specified user.   (It should not normally be the root directory, unless you're logging in as root or a user configured to use /)  By default, you can cd and move around where ever you have the permissions to access; it's an ssh session into the host.

    Alright well in Cyberduck connection brings up the home but you can CD all the way to the Root of the drive. We are migrating away from FTP to SFTP because it is encrypted when the handshake is made.

     

    Any Suggestion more?
