    CHROOT SSH User


    How can I CHROOT a user when he/she logs into SSH. I am looking for it to be like how cPanel can CHROOT a users SSH access. If there is any other way to do it, I could really use it. I just need people locked out of getting out of their home directory.

    Any help appreciated.

    You could set their shell to rsh. rsh is a restricted shell, then just set up what you want executed at startup in $HOME/.profile.

    you could also set the shell to scponly. this restricts people to using scp and ls. so basically they can only move files on and off of the computer.

    the previous ones are a bit simpler. but if you still want to chroot, this will help http://chrootssh.sourceforge.net/index.php.
