Restricting FTP access for a particular directory

Dear All,

I have created a user called "x" who is allowed only to FTP and it is working fine. Here my problem is, I want to give access to a particular directory say for eg:- /dump/test directory. I don't find any option in the useradd command to restrict access to this particular directory only where the "x" user can upload/download files on this directory only.

System details:

Sun Solaris 5.9

Can anyone please help me on this.

Many thanks in advance.



With reg,
Vijay

Create a chroot jail for X where the root & login directory is /dump/test/directory.

Difficulty: Medium
A power series will converge for some values of the variable x and may diverge for others.
True or False?
