Subject: Re: Restricting access to home directory


If there was an easy way to restrict users to their home directories using 
SCP or SCPONLY, I would love that instead.

I don't really feel like installing an FTP server just so users can 
connect to my server when they are already used to using sftp-server.

Is there anyway?
