Issue with SFTP on non-root account using Guacamole  / GUAC

Hi,

I'm wondering if anyone is able to give me a pointer with a strange issue

I've deployed Ubuntu on Azure and I've opted to manage it via Serverpilot.io. I then want to use Guacamole to access the service SSH and SFTP.

When I connect via GUAC (0.99) with the serverpilot account, I can use the SFTP functions without any issue.

Connecting with any other user, the SFTP function doesn't work - I suspect its because the account doesn't have permissions to see the root of the file system.

When I use another SFTP client (Cyberduck), the client recognises that it doesn't have access to the root file system and redirects to somewhere else.....but GUAC doesn't.

Is there something I can change either on GUAC or Ubuntu to get round this??

Thanks

You can gather all needed information and report a bug to Guacamole.
What you posted here is not enough. At least SSHD debug log is needed.
