I have 2 questions about sftp. Firstly a little background. I'm =
running a Linux Enterprise distro with OpenSSH3.6.1. I have tried to =
chroot my sftp session but when I try it just hangs and there are no =
error messages generated (noting odd when I use sftp -v). I have tried =
to patch the stfp-server subsystem (and realise that its not supported =
by OpenSSH) but was wondering why this was the case.

My second question is related. Its appears that when I do use a sftp =
session (non chroot patch) I can navigate around the whole filesystem. =
Does sftp not use the underlying file permissions on the server? Can I =
make it do so?

Thanks in advance
