    Hi Everybody ("Hi, Dr. Nick!"),

    I want my users to use SFTP exclusivly and disallow them from using standard FTP.

    Ideally, I could still use the Plesk interface for most or some of the user management and only have to dip into the terminal for a tweak or two.

    Does anyone have info on how to achieve this in Plesk?

    Would blocking port 21 using a firewall do the trick? Then, only enable the SFTP port?

    I'm not sure... I'm just guessing.

    I'm not familiar with the Plesk setup, so I'm sure that there is probably a config file somewhere that may also force this...

    @BAlGaInTl: Heh. That's not a bad idea. I'll keep this as a fallback idea. I would prefer to do something a little more "legit" when I'm setting my users up.

    Any ideas anybody?
