ssh jail user

I have a developer that needs ssh access to a server to get to a specific directory. I want to restrict them to that directory. I've tried to set their shell as rksh which does jail them but only if they are using ssh from another unix system. If they are using putty or winscp they can still gain access to other directories. Even if they are using ssh from another unix system it only gives them access to the exact directory specified. They can't even loo in their own sub directories. Any help will be greatly appreciated. This is on a Solaris 10 X86 system.

Thanks for the information but that didn't work on my Solaris 10 X86 system. Seems there is a lot of information for Linux but not much for Solaris.
