How To change the user after login


Some Unix servers allow the SFTP server binary to be run under a different user using the sudo command. This is only possible if the server does not prompt the user to enter a password for the new user. This is the case if the logged in user is listed in the /etc/sudoers file.

To change the command that is executed to start the SFTP server follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Favorite Properties
  2. Go to the SSH - SFTP dialog
  3. Set the Custom SFTP Server Command to something like: sudo su -c /usr/lib/sftp-server
