Is it possible to restrict users to their home directories and allow admins to have different home directories? Essentially I want users to have a folder in /var/www/html/$USER and admins to have either unrestricted access or have their root directory be ./ or /www or /etc. I have is set now so users have access to thier home direcotry but I need to upload web files as admin.
I currently have samba setup and connecting. What I am trying to do is have multiple users with access to different directories. For example , let's say there are folders A B C on my Linux machine. I want one guy to see A and C and another guy to see B and C and a third guy to see them all. But I want each user to have access to change delete or execute the files within these directories that they have access to
I want to make a webserver with multiple users allowed to login through SFTP to a specific folder, www.Multiple users are added, lets say user1 and user2, and all of them belonging to the www-data group. The www directory has an owner www-data and a group www-data.
I have used chmod -R 775 on the www folder, but after I try to create a folder test through my SFTP server (using Filezilla) the group of the directory created has only r and x permissions, and I am not able to log in with the second user user2 and create a directory within www/test due to a lack of w permission to the group.
I also tried using chmod 2775 on www directory, but without luck. Can somebody explain to me, how can I make it so that a newly created directory inherits the root directory group permissions?
Everytime I start Rhythmbox it starts to scan my USB HardDrive (which contains 50,000+ files) for media. I searched around, and it seems that there is nothing one can do stop that using any Rhythmbox options, switches, etc. Is there a way to prevent a process (in this case Rhythmbox)from using a certain resource (the path to my USB Drive)? I'm thinking APPArmor or SELinux may be the way to do it.

We are trying to set up a classroom training environment where our SIG can hold classes for prospective converts from Microsoft/Mac. The ten machines will have /home/student01..10 and /home/linsig01..10 as users. We want /home/student01 to be able to explore and sudo so they can learn to administer their personal machines at home. We don't want them to be able to modify (sudo) /home/linsig01. I've seen the tutorial on Access Control Lists but I'd like other input so we get it right the first time.
I've installed Ubuntu Desktop Ed 9 and I want to add a user account that would be very restricted. I would only want them to access the internet and run several programs. I do not want them to have access to the destkop, anything under preferences, administration etc... Is this possible?
I was just wondering how do i restrict someone from entering other files. Like other peoples files & the system files. My users are in /home/. I am running ubuntu 10.10.So how do i restrict access to other folders. Because i dont want other people looking inside others files or messing up my linux files.
How would i go about restricting users to there home dir in sftp and in ssh so that they can not go poking about other dir and files thats above there home dir ?Operating systemCentOS Linux 5.4 Kernel and CPULinux 2.6.18-194.8.1.el5.028stab070.5PAE on i686 Also it will have to be a low resource usage as i dont have much memory on it
I have an Ubuntu 11.04 instance running on Amazon EC2. I am currently using it as an SSH tunnel/SOCKS proxy. Most of my Net activity is on a Windows 7 machine running PuTTY. This setup is working very well. So well that a few of my friends have expressed interest in accessing it. Question is, how do I share this proxy, without giving away my private key and root access? I would like to limit users to only being able to set up an SSH tunnel/SOCKS proxy, with no shell access. What other security measures would you recommend for such a setup? I googled a bit and saw references to rbash and chroot. I have already changed the SSH port, and set the EC2 firewall to allow inbound SSH only from my ISP's address range. My friends use the same ISP. They would probably be running Windows 7/Vista, and PuTTY too.
o, incredibly simple problem that I am having a terrible time finding an answer to. I am trying to setup a program in Fedora to be redirected to a folder in my 64-bit Window$ partition, however I am not sure how to tell Terminal that it has a "(" and ")" in the path name.
The exact path in standard value is as follows: "/media/12842F85842F6A85/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps" What SHOULD this look like in Terminal?
I want the users to access servers via ssh public key only. By default they don't know their initial password and do need to change that when performing administrative tasks.For changing their passwords without knowing the old they need to switch to root for this special case.The only case it seems I don't have control is that users can not only change their password but also the password of other peoples. Does someone sees a solution (without apparmor/selinux and special /usr/bin/passwd.sh) to restrict users to only change their password?I miss the feature of using environment variables in sudoers file.
I have a debian-based ftp server running that I have created a few user accounts on. I will have clients uploading files to the server via ftp soon, and I need a way to restrict their access to only their home folders. I am not familiar with chroot, but from what I read, it can be used to restrict a user to their home folder, and that sounds perfect. How can I do this?
I just installed sudo (I have slackware but always got better help here ) and I tried doing a
Code: sudo du / to see if I could get a general size estimate of all the directories and despite running it sudo I still was told "Cannot read directory" on some of the directories on my pc. should sudo have made it so I could read them all?
I have one Linux PC installed with Suse 11.1. In this I have created three users to get access.
Users able access their login from Windows PC via some utilities. 1. Putty 2. Xming
Users able login using both. With Putty there is no GUI. But with Xmings XLaunch they are able to get similar session as Linux Host PC. At this point of time the host linux PC will become too slow in perfarmance.
How to retrict the users not to open similar session by enablin/disabling some setting in Linux PC?
I have configured rssh 2.3 with openssh 5.8 on RHEL 5.6 64 bit to restrict the users to scp and sftp. When i try to sftp or scp it gives error connection closed. After long googling tried different solutions like add missing libraries, setuid to rssh_helper. I had full copy of /lib to /chroot/lib and /chroot/lib64 but no success. conf and log files are below for reference.
