Hi
I created a ftp user using webmin. can login to ftp site fine. but this user can go up to the root directory using WinScp. how do I restrict user accesing other directories?

ex - directory /ftp/user. is the only directory user should be able to browse through in WinSCP

Thanks

Providing the client is using WinSCP via the FTP protocol, then the alteration you seek is in the ProFTPD Server configuration: http://doxfer.webmin.com/Webmin/ProFTPDServer#Restricting_users_to_their_home

As the user is using WinSCP, it is possible they are actually connecting via the SSH protocol and in that case you should restrict via the SSH Server: http://doxfer.webmin.com/Webmin/SSHServer#Restricting_access_to_the_SSH_se
