In securing my box I need to let some users ftp in. But other than ftp and email they don't need any other privileges.

Suggestions on what shell to assign?

CentOS 4.5
vsftp 2.0.1-5

Look at the -r switch for the bash shell (or start bash with the name "rbash") in "man bash".

I'm not sure, but would /bin/false work as a shell and still give them ftp and mail?
