  1. Hi there, just wanted to share some information about setting up proftpd as sftp server with froxlor users. I searched for this solution but couldn't find anything that suited my needs. So, what I wanted to achieve was the following: Using Froxlor FTP-Account management No SSH Access for FTP-Users Chroot for FTP-Users No FTP Protocol (to avoid Firewall-Config-Nightmares) No interference with standard ssh access The setup was quite easy/straight-forward: 1st edit /etc/proftpd/modules.conf and add following line: LoadModule mod_sftp.c 2nd edit /etc/proftpd/sql.conf and add following line: Include /etc/proftpd/sftp.conf 3rd create file /etc/proftpd/sftp.conf with following content: <IfModule mod_sftp.c> SFTPEngine on SFTPLog /var/log/proftpd/sftp.log SFTPHostKey /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key SFTPHostKey /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key </IfModule> 4th restart proftpd: service proftpd restart Now your users are able to login to SFTP using standard FTP Port 21 (and you only need to open that port in your firewall), SSH File Transfer Protocol and will only be able to write to the FTP-Directory (i.e. customers home). Hope this helps someone.
  2. i have managed to setup froxlor with working FTP and SFTP in parallel. My /etc/proftpd/sftp.conf <IfModule mod_sftp.c> <VirtualHost fe80::1> SFTPEngine on SFTPLog /var/log/proftpd/sftp.log SFTPHostKey /etc/ssh/ssh_host_ecdsa_key SFTPHostKey /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key Port 2222 AllowOverwrite on DefaultRoot /var/customers/webs </VirtualHost> </IfModule> my /etc/ssh/sshd_config contains # override default of no subsystems - chagned by tg # Subsystem sftp /usr/lib/openssh/sftp-server Subsystem sftp internal-sftp Match User testkunde2 ChrootDirectory /var/customers/webs ForceCommand internal-sftp AllowTCPForwarding no X11Forwarding no This is working ritght now. User testkunde2 is jailed in /var/customers/webs But what i need is a multi user solution. Question 1: how i could express the match expression for all froxlor users? I´ve tried Match Group www-data ChrootDirectory /var/customers/webs ForceCommand internal-sftp AllowTCPForwarding no X11Forwarding no which don´t match for any reason. As result user is not jailed in any way and have reading root dir access. User looks like getent passwd testkunde2 testkunde2:x:10001:10001:th gr:/var/customers/webs/testkunde2/:/bin/sh Question 2: chroot is only working if dir is owned by root but froxlor home dirs are owned by user. How could this be managed? This is a question about my personal understanding from froxlor / ssh / sftp. Froxlor home dirs are owned by it´s users. Is there any solution to integrate SFTP user jails for the homedirs of the users? Thank´s to all in advance!
