Restrict users from seeing other folders in root folder

Post by robppt »

Hello

I'm trying to set up a new WingFTP server and while that part is easy, getting the permissions right is challenging

The idea is that the home folder for every user is the same - SFTP Root, but they can only see the folder their user has access to and not anything else. I tried going at it by removing read permissions from "Directory" and adding all the needed permissions in the "Subfolder" menu, but that just removed their ability to modify the other folders, not stop them from accessing them
My current tree looks roughly like this

User1 is the accessing one
SFTPRoot
*Folder1
*Folder2
*Folder3

User1 when connected, should only see Folder1 and have the permissions in there that I've set for him. Is it possible to do something like this with WingFTP or do I have to set the home directory to the specific ones that they should only have access to?

And before anyone asks, it's a new way we want to make the sftp directory but if it isn't possible, then we'll go back to the old way

Thanks in advance!

You can't hide some subfolders, you can only set the folder permissions for the specified subfolders.
