/etc/ftpaccess equivalent on Enterprise 3.0


I have been able to set up the /etc/ftpaccess file on RH7.2, so that when certain users FTP to the server, their home directory appears to be at the root. E.G. they cannot cd above their home directory. This version of RH comes with the wu-ftp demon.

I am now trying to do the same on RH Enterprise 3.0 and the /etc/ftpaccess file is not present. This version of RH comes with gssftp demon, which is a kerberos ready FTP server.

I have searched all over the place to find out how I can do the equivalent on RH Enterprise 3.0 and have been unable to.

The closest thing I can find is that the ftp demon will chroot if the guest or ftp users logs in. I cannot find a way of forcing the FTP demon to chroot on "normal" users.

Please could anyone advise me how I can do this, either by configuring the gssftp demon or by setting up a different FTP server that can do what I want.

Thanks in advance.

Richard Thomas.
