Restrict users' access to just their home directories

VShell® for UNIX includes the ChrootUsers and ChrootGroups commands to restrict the members of the listed groups to their home directories when attempting shell access, remote command execution, or subsystem execution. Providing shell access or SFTP file transfer isn't an "all-or-none" proposition with VShell for UNIX. The new jail shell feature allows you to restrict individual users or groups to have shell access or file transfer privileges in only their home directories. This restriction is implemented using the ChrootUsers or ChrootGroups statement in the configuration file. Read more about chroot commands in the VShell for UNIX Solutions Guide.
