He should be able to connect via SCP-Client (WinSCP) to the SFTP-Server
but NOT(!) connect via putty and SSH (so he can't use the connection as
But when I diable SSH-connection for his account, even SCP does not
Can someone help me? I am a completely newbie to this topic. So, if
there is a solution, please explain it "slowly and simple"
Thanks in advance
