ESXi Use non-root user for ssh/scp access

Hi,

On our ESXi server I need to ability to make a user that can login through ssh/winscp and add/remove items from a folder called "ISO" This user does not need to do anything else, and does not need to login to the VI client.

I already have ssh enabled and can login as root.

Please send me the commands to:
1. Make a new user and set its password
2. Give it the most basic permissions possible
3. Enable SSH for that new user

4. Set permissions on the ISO folder to allow uploads and downloads to that folder and all of its subfolders, no matter who owns the files.

Thanks

It did help some. I looked into this extensively, but dont believe it is possible. It would be dangerous, but I may configure ftp and do it that way.
