Most ftp daemons include this functionality, e.g. by setting chroot_list_enable in vsftpd. I'd suggest checking the documentation of your ftpd and if you can't figure it out posting what ftpd software you're using here.

is it legitimate and allowed and can be done to make another user account set uid and gid to null 0 to make another root account with different name and possibly not damage the debian system creating and using that new account BenJoBoy Linux - Newbie 12 01-29-2006 11:02 AM
