Force SFTP, disallow reg. FTP

#1
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?

Thanks,

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?

Thanks,
fumble
