I am trying to setup jailkit so a remote user can access the server using ssh. Everything seems to be ok except I get the error "Could not chdir to home directory /home/jail/./home/testuser: Permission denied"

please send
ls -l /
ls -l /home/
ls -l /home/jail/
ls -l /home/jail/home/

in the /home dir are the directories
drwxrwx--- 12 testuser testuser 4096 Nov 7 10:11 testuser
drwxrwx---   8 root      root      4096 Nov  7 15:08 jail
According to the error message there is apermission problem.. can you tell me what the correct permissions should be.

I usually use 0755 (drwxr-xr-x)
chmod 0755 /home
chmod 0755 /home/jail
chmod 0755 /home/jail/home

It is authenticating the password correcly so up to that pint is is working. If I enter an incorrect password the error message is completely different so I feel the login portionis working correctly and the problem must be with the permissions. In the /jail/etc/group file is:

I assume you mean /home/jail/etc/group ?

In the /jail/etc/password file is:
In the /etc/passwd file there is a line:
in the /var/log/messages file are these lines: Nov 7 17:59:14 localhost jk_chrootsh[23594]: abort, path /home/jail is setgid

hmm funny, setgid normally shows up in a directory listing as

setting the permissions as shown above should help.
