Topic "Preventing users from roaming"

This may not be the right place for my question but still I'm hoping to get some pointers atleast.

I have a linux box running sshd and we need to share files with some of our customers. I intend to use WinSCP but how can I prevent these users from roaming above their home directory. I don't want these users to even list any files anywhere other than their home directory.

Would appreciate your help.

Thanks
Ajit

All you have to do is 'jail' them:
