Filezilla Error

When I add the following lines to my sshd_config file, I get a "network error: software caused connection abort" in Filezilla. When I remove these lines, it works fine. But the user can go outside of their directory.

AllowGroups sftpusers
Match Group sftpusers
ChrootDirectory %h
AllowTCPForwarding no
ForceCommand internal-sftp
My users are part of the sftpusers group.
Any ideas as to why it isn't working?

I take it that "ChrooDirectory" is meant to be "ChrootDirectory" ?
- why restrict tcp forwarding?
- I'm not entirly sure, but I believe a chroot cell should be owned by the root user (and thus non-writeable by users)

I updated the original post code.
I was just following a tutorial online. What does TCP forwarding do?
And do you mean, when you do a ls -l on the home directory, it is root:root? And how would you make it so that a standard user can write to it?
