Larry - Tx much for your reply...
well even if chroot is "faked" (not sure what that means) - I might still be
inclined to use it...
Unless - is there a way I can LIMIT activity to only "scp"?
AND - prevent accessing outside what would be my "jail"?
I certainly did miss that very well titled document - no wonder my searches
were fruitless!! :-) I'll check to make sure the path is getting set
correctly. Although, if I get scp running like I want, then I no longer
need/care about resolving this problem....
TIA - Bob
