OpenSSH is great. I like it. But the version that comes bundled with Windows 10 sucks. Setup is pretty easy and straight forward. But due to the way access is handled in Windows (e.g., by ACLs) and the fact that it (the Linux/Unix version as well for obvious reasons) does not support links which point to resources outside of the chrooted environment, it’s rather useless for my purposes.

I’d like to have an OpenSSH based solution where I’m able to work with virtual file-systems for chrooted environments just like FTP, and without the need to create a bunch of otherwise useless users in the operating system. Oh, I have such wonderful memories of the Gene6 FTP server. That was a truly great product. Unfortunately, it’s development ceased in 2019 and their website is broken.

Well, yes, I know that it’s not the way how SSH works. But for chrooted environments which are mainly used as SFTP it would actually make sense. Like, somehow a portable installation of OpenSSH. That would be pretty nice.
