Is there any way to restrict a user from cd between a directory using ftp.
I tried using rksh but they still can go between directories

Been a long time since I've done that with the regular ftp server. You need to make entries in the config and setup each user so that they have a directory and a land directory like:


This sets up a user in /ftp/testuser but when they log in they are locked into the /ftp/testuser/ftp account.

Instead, I normally use Proftpd which easily allows both ftp and SFTP chroot capabilities without having to mess with that. This allows you to support both ftp ans sftp connection without allowing the user to wander.
