[Solved] Jail does not have SSH env variables available.

    I have a small problem where the ISPConfig jailed virtual hosts do not have the `SSH_CONNECTION` environment variable available. This is causing a problem with `gitolite`.

    I'm assuming that the 'jail' software is 'chroot'. Whilst I don't want to accept environment variables from the clients themselves, but I do need this variable passed in from SSH and CHROOT.

    How can I get SSH/CHROOT to pass the SSH_CONNECTION variable to jailed users?

    I think there's a config setting under /etc/jailkit/ for env variables to allow. (I'll take a look when I'm at a computer.) That would be a good one to add in ispconfig, if you want to create an issue for it in gitlab.

    Thanks Jesse. You're on the right track but I've figured it out already.
    In global /etc/jailkit, the `jk_chrootsh.ini` file needed to be modified as follows:
