 jail
Author: Landon Evans

I've been pondering about jail these last few days, and I think I'm confusing myself more than trying to figure out what it is for. Please tell me if I'm wrong or right on this. I see jail as chroot with some extra goodies along with it. Is it that you setup a "jail" for say, jschmoe and his home dir is /usr/home/jschmoe. When you setup the jail from jschmoe, are you ultimately chrooting him to his own folder, but giving access to certain commands like cd, ls, pine, ping, etc ? If i'm wrong on this, could you please reply, and if you understand this, could you give me a basic syntax for this? It would be most appreciative, Thank you.
