I'm running an SSH server, and I need three users. The first will be an admin, have SSH access, and can view everything. The latter two can't user SSH, and are limited to their respective directories. Can anyone help me with this?

Give us more details about your intended setup, plese. - Is your SSH server machine instaled a Ubuntu server edition without desktop so only terminal access is possible or is it a full desktop edition? - How do you expect your users without SSH acces will connect to your machine? - What do you mean by "are limited to their respective directories"? Where they should have read/write/execute permissions? –  zandar Nov 9 '13 at 16:55
1. It's a full desktop edition. 2.I just want to limit terminal access to them. 3. They should have all permissions, but are limited to the directory of my choosing. –  JWENG8 Nov 9 '13 at 23:13
