Re: restricted shell

You didn't mention which version of Linux you have, but if it's anything like Redhat, then see the man page on ksh.

#ksh -r

will give you a restricted korn shell

Re: restricted shell

One more item...here is a link to a document describing how to set up a chroot environment for BIND to run in. You should be able to adapt what it has to say to your environment.
