What I am ultimately looking to do is jail a group of users to only be able to FTP into their home folder. They should be able to have r&w capabilities within their home folder, and within ALL directories in that folder. I have been trying to do this for a bit, but there doesn't seem to be a simple solution that works easily. Here is what I have tried:
chrooting the users to their home folder by adding the following the following code to the vstfp conf:
This created an issue because the users did not have full access to directories within, and some problems hung around with file permissions.
Removing ALL permissions for / for the group by using ACLs with the following code:
setfacl -x g:501 /
Nothing happened when I executed this command, although it is correct (as far as I know, it follows documentation verbatim).
I asked another question here about setting ACLs, and Zypher correctly informed me that messing with /'s permissions can get bad quickly, so I am looking for the best way to do what I described above. Any help is much appreciated!
