I'm trying to give an SFTP only access to his home directory to a user.
This is the /etc/passwd line for the user:
I edited the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file like that:
#Subsystem sftp /usr/lib/openssh/sftp-server Subsystem sftp internal-sftp # Set this to 'yes' to enable PAM authentication, account processing, # and session processing. If this is enabled, PAM authentication will # be allowed through the ChallengeResponseAuthentication and # PasswordAuthentication. Depending on your PAM configuration, # PAM authentication via ChallengeResponseAuthentication may bypass # the setting of "PermitRootLogin without-password". # If you just want the PAM account and session checks to run without # PAM authentication, then enable this but set PasswordAuthentication # and ChallengeResponseAuthentication to 'no'. UsePAM yes Match user bob AllowTcpForwarding no X11Forwarding no ForceCommand internal-sftp
Then I restart ssh:
sudo service ssh restart
If I try
sftp email@example.com everything works well.
Then I try to Chroot bob to his home, so I add
ChrootDirectory /home/bob in the right place:
Match user bob ChrootDirectory /home/bob AllowTcpForwarding no X11Forwarding no ForceCommand internal-sftp
I changed the permission to bob home:
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 2014-02-27 13:13 bob
Now when I try sftp firstname.lastname@example.org the answer is:
Write failed: Broken pipe Connection closed
my OpenSSH version is 1:5.5p1-4ubuntu6
Where I'm wrong??? Where I can look to solve my problem???
EDIT: after a bit of debugging i found this error message:
bad ownership or modes for chroot directory component "/"
