setting up ftp security on 10.4

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
A while back I was running a dual g4 and it was perfectly set-up to run my ftp server. I even did the ftpchroot fix. WHen a user would log onto my mac, he/she was not able to go up the directory. They would only see their given folder.

I recently got rid of the dual g4 and decided to get an intel mac mini. I tried to set up the ftp server on it and its running fine except that when someone logs onto the ftp server they can move up in the directory and see every user including myself "the admin"

They cant access anything but its still not what I want. I dont want anyone able to see any folder/folders but their own.

I also tried the fpchroot fix but that did nothing this time.

Any ideas?

I am running 10.4.7

Um, why don't you just use SFTP?

just to make sure I have this right, in order to enable sftp on mac os 10.4, you need to enable remote login correct? Is this all that is needed to get sftp to work?

As far as I can tell, yes, that's all.
