I would like to lock a SFTP/SSH user in their home directory, however cannot find the variable to do this.


please tell me how I can do this.

You'll need to set up a chroot jail

IIRC there has been discussion of this in the forums previously (have a search). Failing that googling should turn up some useful resources if you keep in mind that TKL v11.x is based on Ubuntu 10.04. Sorry I can't be more explicit (rushing off to work in  a sec...)
