    Dose making /usr/lib/ssh/sftp-server the login shell work?

    With openssh and rsa or dsa private key login I bound the private key to
    only run /usr/lib/ssh/sftp-server (or openssh equiv). That seemed to
    work. Dont give your "customer" the password to the account and then all
    they can run is sftp! - maybe some variation of this may help.

    Good luck
