Just as the title says; I've been toying with the security and established that I can't log in unless the user account has read permissions on the Windows folder.

I'm trying to lock down the user's access to their home folder, so this is obviously an issue!

I am using Windows Server 2008 R2. I notice that someone else has this exact issue too: http://www.itefix.no/i2/node/12381 It does not appear to be an issue on older Windows Server versions.

What specifically is in the Windows folder that requires read access?

Hope someone can help...cheers

Have you followed instructions in the FAQ

How can I limit users' access to their home directories only ?

The only bit I overlooked was making sure the user account is only a member of CopsshUsers...it was also a member of Users, so I removed it from there.

Still not working though :(

I'm reading about using chroot to jail the user to the home folder...I'm a little confused over its usage though...could anyone tell me how to integrate it with copssh or provide a link to a walkthrough please?
