Migrate users from copssh 1.4.2 to 4.7.1

[I am posting this again since the initial post seems to have got lost eventhough it was replied to  :-) ]

Is there a procedure for migrating users of a very old version of COPSSH (1.4.2) to the latest version (4.7.1)? Ideally this should be done transparently for the end user so that they don't have to re-supply their public keys and so on.

Thanks. 

The answer given indicated to manually update the "bin\copsshcp.config" file.

But is there no way to copy an equivalent file from the old version of COPSSH to the new version?

Also we are struggling how to isolate these users so they can't browse outside of their home directory, which are on a network drive. Is there a way to do this globally in the configuration somewhere?

Thanks.

Hi, there is no direct

Hi, there is no direct migration path from 1.x.x to 4.x.x. We are preparing right now Copssh version 4.7.2 addressing the problem with isolating user directories. It will be ready within one hour. It has a new Control Panel which takes necessary measures to make sure that the user is isolated in his/her home directory. This feature is valid for 'Sftp' type users, and assumes the default service account (SvcCOPSSH). Please let us know for a workaround if you have an other service account.

What you can do is to activate your users via Copssh Control Panel and specify their current directories as home directory with 'Sftp' as acccess type.
