How do you allow ssh to permit connections to a folder outside of the /home folder of the user loggin in to ssh? For example, i want to sync two folders (using unison) on different machines and need to ssh to the remote folder ..
but the folder is a shared folder outside of my home folder (i.e. /user/data/pub). ssh [EMAIL PROTECTED] works to get me into the user folder and I can cd to the folder I need to access (and have proper perms there) But, I need to connect to the folder directly to use unison (file/directory synchronization tool). ssh [EMAIL PROTECTED] /usr/data/pub/ gives permission denied errors. I've heard the directory path needs to be relative to the home path but the following does not work either: ssh [EMAIL PROTECTED] ../../../usr/data/pub/ (where the default directory for ssh logins is /usr/home/[username]/.) I've tried formatting variations of the above themes to no avail and suspect there's a setting somewhere to allow what directories ssh connections can be made to, or creating a link in [users] home directory to the public directory. Your help would be appreciated. -- Turner Litigation Services POB 319 Eureka, CA 95502 Tel.
