ftp connection to the same server


Hi,

I would like to some details for the following basic questions


1) Once I login to a server, how may level/time I can use su(switch user) login in the same server. Does the su user(new user) has any dependency with the parent user.


2) After login to a server, can a open a sftp connection to the same server, does it have any connection issues/limitations for ports etc. and can I copy/move files using the new sftp connection. Would like to have details about this.


Thanks in advance.

1. no limit on switching users (probably a hteoretical one, but not one you need worry about)
Why would ypu want to do it anyway?
BTW
Code:
# this logs in as new user but with your original env
su <user>


# this also gives you new user's env
su - <user>
2. you could sftp to yourself, but again, why bother??
