Chroot sftp/scp user on MacOS X
Nice how-to type guide.
"The standard OpenSSH included in
Mac OS X Panther does not support chroot. Largely, two ways are known as a
chroot solution. The first is scponly (http://www.sublimation.org/scponly/)
and the other is the chrootssh patch (http://chrootssh.sourceforge.net/).
The directions below are for installing the "scponly" on
Mac OS X 10.4.2 with Developer Tools (Xcode 2.1) installed.Â I originally
followed these directions
in an attempt to get SFTP working, but they weren't quite right for Tiger.Â
With advice from people at macosxhints.com
I re-wrote the directions to make more sense and switched to the scponly method,
as it happens to be much easier to set up." Chroot sftp/scp user on MacOS X 10.4.x (Tiger)
