[Jailkit-users] Group management question

I have setup an SFTP server with JailKit and it works great.   I currently have it setup so that each user can only see their own directory and can only connect via SFTP or SCP.


I would like to setup a user who can access specific directories of specific Jail users, in other words a master to only a select set of users on the server.   However if I relax the group permissions I believe that the users would be able to view each others data?  And if I change the group from users to something I create I cannot connect (get an error that the group is not set to users).   I saw a thread on Master accounts but don’t understand how to configure this correctly.  Currently the user I have overseeing the folders is using root access (they are a trusted member of the IT team), however I need to delegate this to a non-IT person and so do not want to continue using root.


I used to be real good on Unix and Linux but this is really making me doubt my abilities, been working in windows to long.  In windows I would just assign a second group access to the directories and allow the user to connect and I would be all set.


Someone help me out on this one? 


One humbled SA.
