This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

When using SSH Client from a windows machine, it keeps popping up the enter password box, i enter the correct password and it does the same.
I was trying to force ftp users to chroot to theie home directory which is when i came upon this. I originally thought it was a problem with the ftpd configuration but ive tried all the options that should work.
I don't really understand what your trying to accomplish, but I would highly suggest to not allow root any type of remote access, only the ability to su or setup sudo as this is a bad security risk, even using ssh.
If you want to jail ftp users to their home directory, you should read up on whatever ftp daemon your using and most of the time you can do this by adding whatever to the config file for ftp, etc.
