rsync via ssh chroot?
Hi all, first post. :)

I'm wanting to enable backups utilizing rsync from a few systems on our network to the ISPConfig3 server. I would like the clients to access the server via ssh chroot and be locked down to their home folder and backup to a subfolder therein utilzing rsync. Is it possible with ISPConfig3?

Thank you in advance for your time and help.

You can set up SSH chroot jails with ISPConfig (using Jailkit). Under System > Server Config on the Jailkit tab, you can configure which apps (like rsync) are copied to the chroot jails.

Thank you very much for your help. With your response and a review of the manual I was able to determine the action to take. Rsync is already designated in the JailKit ini file so I just added "rsync" as an allowed app. I'll be testing the setup soon. Again, thank you.
