SUN Solaris 2.6


I need a account for foreign user.
They have only to work on their home-directory.

How can I build this special-account ?

Hi Janr,


I mean with "foreign user" people, who came via VPN from other companies on our server.

FYI: The tradition term in English for what you describe is "remote user".

Question

Do you know how to create a 'normal' user?
because, i don't have a idea what special on your foreign user.

I think you just create a user with the admintool, and create a special group-id for foreign users and specify a disk for the home directories.
And make sure those users can only rwx on there own disk

Yes, I know how to create a "normal" user.

what I have done :

groupadd -g ...

useradd -g ... -d /specialdir -m ....

How can I make sure, that this user only work on his home-directory ?

you do this by setting the permissions of the users home directory, giving the user read and write access to only his home directory. when you initially create a user the only place that they can write to is their home directory andno place else. the man pages for "chmod" should help.
