User Creationg : ssh/sftp user jail to $HOME only
I need help on adding user , yes add user as normal with command line
useradd -d /export/home/user2 -m -s /bin/bash -c "User2 Owner" user2

the problem is once user2 ssh/sftp to the box, user2 is able to go and read /export/home/user1 , the question is what is the right way to add user which only can read his own $HOME folder only

for your info i am using solaris 10 sparc

any help is appreciated

I already asked this on

Basically, when you create an user, his home directory is created with permission 755, that is: everyone can read into it. If you don't want anyone but the owner to read into it you can change the home directory permission to 700 with chmod.
