A user with restricted ftp access to a folder

Hi,

We have Oracle Database on AIX 5.3 server.We want to give ftp access to a user to a specific folder.He should be able to put and get files from that specific folder only.Moreover he should not be able to cd to any other filesystems also along with root directory.

Please note that as per hardening ftp service is disabled as a security measure.We are using ssh to access the server.


Please suggest as we have to implement this on production urgently.

If you want to use FTP without using FTP you've got a problem. If you want to use FTP in a chroot environment you can use either AIX FTP or an FTP server from another vendor. There are probably a hundred FTP servers to choose from. However in most cases you will be required to compile it yourself. If you cannot do that you might check vsftpd. You can download it from Michael Perzl's website: AIX 5L Open Source Packages | Main / AIX Open Source Packages
