I am not familiar with tunneling. Can you please offer
a web link or reference so i can get more info on this
 I had thought the ssh was more secure than ftp and
thought i could set up sshd server and then have
clients use some SCP client (both in windows and in
linux) to download files. the problem i am
experiencing though is that i need to limit them from
wandering around. Even though i have permissions set
up so they probably can't get into anything else, with
SCP they can still SEE all the directories.
I want them to only see their personal home drives and
the /pub share.
