Hello Experts!

    Quick question, I'm in an SSH session and have create a group and two or three users.  I want to be able to limit to these users to them accessing any other folders beyond their own home folder.  In other words I want to keep them from doing a change directory.  What is the syntax for this?  Thanks for your help.
