    I have ISPConfig 3 on Wheezy Perfect Server.

    Users are SSH Chroot with Jailkit selected.

    I can login to SSH no problem with ssh users. However when Bitvise tries to open sftp window it opens and closes the session immediately.

    **NOTE** My super users can SSH and SFTP with no problems. So I am assuming SSH is fine and running correctly, it is probably my own typo or mistake causing the issues I think.

    Through searching howtoforge etc I have seen a few statements like:

    1. Make sure you have the following line:

    Subsystem sftp internal-sftp

    Now I have the following in /etc/ssh/sshd_config:

    Subsystem sftp /usr/lib/openssh/sftp-server

    Do I ADD "Subsystem sftp internal-sftp" as a new line or do I replace "/usr/lib/openssh/sftp-server" with "internal-sftp"?

    Any help on getting SFTP working for users chrooted jailkit would be appreciated.

    Thanks folks,

    Hello Till,

    I had read that exact post earlier. I am confused though.

    Do I need to download these libraries? And then to apply the libraries to my current users do I use the:

    jk_cp -j /var/www/clients/clientX/webY/./home/userxyz /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libnsl.so.1 /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libnss*.so.2

    command, or do I use the

    jk_update -j /var/www/clients/clientX/webY/./home/userxyz


    Also what about the

    jk_init -v -j uidbasics netbasics

    command listed on the first site you link too?

    Thanks folks as always,
