i was wondering how i can give a user SCP access (or sftp ) via WIN SCP but not allow them to login and use a shell via putty.
Place a AllowUsers directive in sshd_config. This will allow the user to scp/ftp but not allow them to login via putty. However, if sopiaz allows telnet login that's a different story. Either way, sopiaz should not have a telnet daemon running as it is very insecure.
