    I have jailed shell enabled for user accounts however they are able to execute commands like wget, top and others which I don't want users to be able to run. So how can I restrict those commands in the jailed shell environment? I couldn't locate the proper configuration file for this.

    Thank you :)

    Hello :)

    I don't see any documented or supported methods of disabling specific commands to users that are assigned jailed shell access. You can grant access to additional directories via the instructions at:

    How to Create Custom Jailed Shell (Jailshell) Mounts

    Is there any specific reason you need to disable commands such as wget when such commands are already available through cron jobs?

    Thank you.
