Re: restrict ftp user

Hi,

You define this in /var/adm/inetd.sec

You can also modify it through sam

Shalom,

The shell /usr/bin/false in /etc/passwd as the default shell prevents non-ftp logins.

The ftpaccess file in your ftpd server can be modified to chroot the user and make their home directory their root directory.

All binaries they need for ftp, e.g. the ls must be provided to the local home directory for this user.

Re: restrict ftp user

Hi,

What is the version of hp-ux you are running on your server. HP_UX 11i v1 onwards you have inbuild chroot utility. you need to just run a script /opt/ssh/ssh_chroot_setup.sh
