WinSCP & SFTP Problem

Hi I was wondering if anyone could help me I currently have CYGWIN installed on a Windows 2003 server my client uses WINSCP to transfer files into there Home Directory, I have noticed that WINSCP allows the user to click a drop down box that allows them to view Full Directory Tree from Root / Descending and allows the user to enter these Directories?

But when using Putty Or another SSH Client the Tree directory cannot be accessed and they are locked (jailed) in there /home/~user every other directory you get permission denied which is exatcly what I wanted. So the question is why does WINSCP do this?

Thanks

Regards

Re: WinSCP & SFTP Problem

Does WinSCP show contents of directories where you think the user should not have permissions to list it?

Well that's not a problem of WinSCP. It just does whatever your servers allow it to do. So either you have setup permissions incorrectly. Or your SFTP server circumvents them.
