    Hello everyone

    I need help on how to limit access for a user on fedora 5
    example is I create a user XXX and I only want that user to have access to the /home/XXX directory as of right now the user can cd .. and see everything and can access the files in most of the directories..

    any help is appreciated
    thank you

    Do you want to limit (chroot) the user when he logs in with SSH or with FTP?

    Basically yes, though there might be some differences from the tutorial...

    Why do you want to use telnet when you have SSH? telnet is insecure...

    very limited

    hello falko

    the tutorials are excellent i used the fedora 5 setup and it works very well i am very inexperienced with the different dist. of linux so i dont really know what is the changes from a debian to a fedora installation for the chrooted ssh if that makes any sense

    I'd just start, and if you get errors, search on Google or this forum, and if you don't find an answer, ask.
    I think there was somebody else trying to do the same on FC5, he posted in this forum...
