I'm sure it's possible to just tunnel FTP through ssh (both the communications and data channels), but I'm curious why I don't see more people doing this.
But it is not limitation of SFTP. It is limitation of the most used SFTP server, the one shipped with OpenSSH. Commercial SFTP servers allow this.Hey all, I couldn't think of a better place to ask this really. In reading up on how sftp works, it seems that a common problem/complaint is that there is no way to chroot users to a specific directory.
I haven't heard of this. FTP is usually tunneled thru SSL. I do not know if it has any reason or if it is just custom.I'm sure it's possible to just tunnel FTP through ssh (both the communications and data channels), but I'm curious why I don't see more people doing this.
Sure, but OpenSSH does not allow this AFAIK.SSH: You'll still have to log on to SSH first, no? So either you chroot that SSH access to a specific directory and the problem doesn't occur, or you don't and you give the user access anyway.
I don't understand this.Or can you somehow force him / her to only use that SSH connection to subsequently start an FTP session over it?
