I sort of figured that since LTSP5 works so much with ssh. I want all users to have
the ability to transfer files from home, and having two instances of ssh and all the
redundant user stuff just doesn't seem to be a sensible solution.
Maybe I go back to FTP or SFTP on an alternate port. At this point I don't think the
messing around to get chrooted/jailed ssh working the way I need would be worth the
trouble. I read somewhere today that SFTP can be jailed easily so maybe that is my
next step in the right direction. I was really hoping I was just missing some easy
option in sshd_config to enable this, oh well :-(
Thanks for the tips.
