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:
2nd edit /etc/proftpd/sql.conf and add following line:
3rd create file /etc/proftpd/sftp.conf with following content:
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).
