Hi all,

I'm sure this will sound very basic to the majority of you, but I've never dealt with this before and have found myself stuck.  I have created a user on my ubuntu server and want to restrict that user to be able to view what's in his home folder only (basically so he can access the files I want him to via SFTP but nothing else).

Is there an easy way to do this?  I don't have X loaded so it's all got to be through the command line on a very slow connection.
