You didn't answer the chroot question.

Additionally, you are now talking about folders "on the firewall" instead of the GridFTP box.

GridFTP comes with Grid application called Globus. Globus uses chroot.


I would like to protect both the service and the box. If you do not know about the service, could you please suggest any to protect the box?

thanks,
J

I gave you one suggestion back in post #4, and unixfool gave you suggestions in posts #6 and #12. To get a glimpse of the vast array of hardening options available to you, maybe stop by unSpawn's Security references thread.
