I have been using OpenSSH for some time now with no problems. I could easily connect with an sftp client like FileZilla and download files from my Linux machine with no problem.

Last night, I installed MySecureShell which works with OpenSSH to restrict user access to just their home folders when connecting remotely (no need in letting them surf around my file system now is there? Wink. ) The installation was simple and there were no errors. However, now there seems to be a problem. I can still connect to my server using FileZilla but I can not download files.

I checked my log files to see what was going on. When I connect, my logs say the following:



05/10/2008 10:57:43 AM closet sshd[6784] subsystem request for sftp

When I try to download a file I get the below messages in the logs:

So..something seems to be up with PAM or some other type of authorization. If anyone has any ideas I would really appreciate the help.

Thanks,
