I solved that problem by whipping up a quick program that emulates /bin/sh
as far as command line arguments go, yet only executes the sftp-server
binary regardless of what you feed it. Works fine for users that I want
to restrict to sftp access only.
My lightweight /bin/sh also chroots the user in to a file transfer jail
prior to executing sftp-server. To accomplish that I had to write a LKM
to allow non-root users to chroot themselves to the jail (and only the
jail). This prevents my file transfer users from poking around the entire
