which ftp server can...


Is there a FTP server i can install that allows me to set the max MB the user can upload to my computer? And is there one that also allows me to disable the user from leaving the /home/[user] directory?

The one I am using now is pretty decent, allows me to set users and passwords, and set write restrictions, but i cant seem to figure out how to cap their upload or keep them from viewing other directories.

suggestions appreciated,
wes

Setup user quotas would handle that. And of course chroot will always or can jail them to a particular directory, etc.

Thanks for the reply trickykid. I definitely will look up some documentation on how user quotas work and on that command. So maybe i won't even need to find another ftp server program.

thanks,
Wes
