I'm having troubles with a chrooted environment on Ubuntu 12.04.
Set up FTP/SFTP server where users part of a new 'sftp' group can sftp and ftp to the same directory
The ProFTP setup is a base build in Ubuntu and it works as expected. User 'test1' can log into the server via ftp on tcp 21 and is chrooted to his directory /home/test1/ftproot.
# Use this to jail all users in their homes DefaultRoot ~/ftproot
When the user test1 logs in via ftp, he sees only / (that's what I want).
But when the same user logs in via sftp, and it's properly chrooted using sshd_config, because the /home/test1 directory MUST be owned by root, the user logs in via sftp and sees:
/ /ftproot /.bashrc
What this means is that the user does NOT end up in the same /ftproot directory. test1 will end up in his /home/test1 home directory by default which is actually owned by root. Therefore, he cannot write anything via sftp until he changes directories to /ftproot.
How do i setup the sftp server so by default he ends up in the same directory?
Here are my sshd_config relevant settings:
#Subsystem sftp /usr/lib/openssh/sftp-server Subsystem sftp internal-sftp -f AUTH -1 VERBOSE Match Group sftp ChrootDirectory %h ForceCommand internal-sftp #AllowTcpForwarding No
ChrootDirectory %h/ftproot does not work.
