Is there a reason why the ISPconfig team still did not fix the "Open DNS servers" warning/error?

(I've fixed the /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/named.conf.master again myself)

- Added: Support for chrootSSH in shell accounts.
I can still get out of the users SSH dir and read a lot of stuff when SSH'ing with a test account :/

Personally I dont see a problem in this behaviour that is the default in many BIND and linux installations. Though if you dont like others to use your nameserver, you can change it iby modifying the BIND template as you already did.

Sure, first you will have to install a patched SSH daemon as chrooting is not supported by SSH by default.

See step 2 in this howto:

Then you will have to enable it in ISPConfig in the file, set:

$go_info["server"]["ssh_chroot"] = 1;

The user account will be chrooted for every user with SSH enabled that you create or update.

Updated, no problems, look like everything is working normally.. Oh, i did have some cert error problem after update, so i recreated cert manually and its working now..

schmidtedv 17th July 2006 19:43

By updating/renewing the certificates in it correct to answer by not to encrypt them? I remember the HowTo told me so...
