Deny SSH access while allowing SFTP access
Authored by: spinkb on Nov 23, '07 08:42:13PM

While not a free method, by far the easiest and most configurable method is to use CrushFTP. That way you can give SFTP access to any folder you feel like without and risk of a user getting out of the folder, or some permissions you for got to set exposing your entire machine. Additionally the user doesn't need to be a real OS X user either, so they only exist in CrushFTP.

Roughly 10 mouse clicks to make the user, give access, and be ready to go.

I am the author of CrushFTP, so my opinion is very biased...but still accurate. :)
