    Need configurable sftp-server


    While ssh and sftp are secure in transferring files, the sftp-server does not allow any granularity. for example, there's nothing to stop a sftp user from downloading the /etc/passwd file since it can be read.

    Is there an sftp-sever that allows you to restrict which files users can download from the server? Is there another way to deal with this?

    You can use chrooting with a shell like rsh for example .
