  I have solaris 8.  Is there any way to restrict ftp user
to his home directory only.  I know I can do this with
anonymous ftp, ncftp and wuftp.  I wonder if this can be
done with solaris standard ftp.  

thanks in advance

This can be done but it's a little bit fiddly an involves setting up anonymous ftp with sub-logins. i.e. the user logs in once as anonymous with their email address as password then issues the 'user' command to log into the jailed ftp user. From here they will only have visibility of their home directory downwards.
