Re: SSH access restrictions

Thanks Jason,

Well I think it may be OK to just use the 'testing' .deb.
Why ?
Because I just did.
It all installed OK without any error's.
I just downloaded it and dpkg -i it.

I haven't used it yet as I'm still reading the readme
but it has successfully put a pam_chroot.so in the /lib/security dir. and
libpam-chroot in /usr/share/doc.

Finger's crossed it'll work just fine.
To be thorough I'll head over to http://www.apt-get.org now.
