    Is there away to limit a user to their directory? I can login as a user and get into my etc or var or usr directory. I want to limit the users to thrir directory only.

    Thanks fr replying so fast.

    Is it normal in jail shell to be able to browse the etc, var, usr directory? When I login as a user I can go into any directory that I like. I can do much but I can view the files.

    That is the normal behavior, yes. Though what they are exposed to is (theoretically) santized.
