Unhappy SSH and User Home Directory


Hello everyone;
I wanna use SSH that limit users to see just their home directory.
I don't want to use ftp!
How can I do that?
Thanks...

FTP and SSH are different. SSH is (usually), a terminal protocol, but can provide transport services via SFTP or SCP. FTP is clear-text, unencrypted transfer only.

Google for "linux chroot ssh". You'll see lots of how-tos.

Yes...as I said, look up chroot ssh.
