I am trying to restrict a newly added user to his homedir /home/username. Don't want him to be able to cd out of it.
I have this my sshd_config:
Match User username ChrootDirectory %h X11Forwarding no AllowTcpForwarding no ForceCommand internal-sftp
I set the owner of /home/username directory to root with chown, and set the permissions to 755.
Also added the user to chroot.conf.
Restarted sshd. But I get a connection closed by remote server when I try to login with the user.
SSH output(edited out some info from it like IP address and RSA key):

Any idea why this happens?
