I installed a new virtual server, SLES 11.2 64bit to work as a sFTP server for a local community. But I’ve done something wrong and need help.
The server system is installed with LVM on both the OS disk and also a second disk where the /sftp is mounted.
sshd_config is edited with these lines:
Subsystem sftp internal-sftp
and on the last rows:
Match group sftpgroup
Reloaded sshd with rcsshd reload.
Then I created a group called “sftpgroup” and a folder structure for the chrooted sftp service.
mkdir -p /sftp/chroot
chmod 750 /sftp/chroot
chown root:sftpgroup /sftp/chroot
Created a user restricted to the group sftpgroup but without shell (/bin/false)
When I try to access the sftpserver with testuser@sftpserver I get:
“couldn’t read packet: connection reset by peer”
the /var/log/messages on server says:
“fatal:bad ownership or modes for chroot directory /path”
What is missing/wrong?
