I want to configure sftp-server to share a directory but I don't know how to modify
My requirements are:
1) Login shall not use certificates, only password (i.e. authorization uses password method)
2) I want to login with user: ftp, password: foo and share directory /home/ftp.
3) I have an application which from time to time needs to download a file from the server, I don't need to login with a full operating client.
So far I added the following lines to /etc/ssh/sshd_config:
Protocol 2 Subsystem sftp /usr/libexec/sftp-server Match User ftp ForceCommand internal-sftp ChrootDirectory /home/ftp
Everything else is commented.
/home/ftp is an empty directory at present moment.
Access works if I try to download a file using root credentials but it doesn't work if I use ftp credentials. Do I need to set a login shell? Do I need to populate /home/ftp somehow?
EDIT: This is my sshd log:

* The client hangs here (until a timeout occurs) *
Please note, again, that if I login as "root" the file downloads correctly. It also downloads correctly if I comment out the last three lines of the configuration file (i.e. the
Match line and the following 2).
