Default Ubuntu 12 / ISPConfig 3 / Jailkit & SFTP


i am using ubuntu 12 and ispconfig. i followed instructions here:

everything seems to be working (although quotas did not work from the instructions above) except i cannot SFTP with a shell user created with the "Chroot Shell" option enabled.

when SSH, the username and password is accepted. when using an SFTP client such as transmit (OSX), i get the error "username and password has been rejected". the server logs do not reflect this error, the client simply disconnects.

SFTP is enabled in the ispconfig server setup (the jailkit tab under Jailkit chroot app sections). should i add the server path for sftp under Jailkit chrooted applications?

SFTP with jailed users works fine for our CENTOS based box.

our main concern is giving someone an SFTP or FTP login that is locked to a directory, without them having to know what directory to upload files into.

has anyone been successful is getting SFTP with jailed users to work with ubuntu 12 and ispconfig 3? i've scoured the forums and have not been successful.

i've included the auth.log entry from an SFTP attempt below. i'm not seeing any errors. should i be looking in a different log file?
