No idea what you're asking or why. What "accounts under ftp user files"?? What do you mean? What version/distro of Linux? What's the specific issue you're wanting to know about?

Hi there,

TB0ne, this is AIX, not Linux.

TK, I assume you're referring to /etc/ftpusers, which means these users won't be able to FTP. If so, no harm in leaving them there, as there should be no reason for anyone to connect to your server with FTP as these users.

Regards,

Clifford

..and now that you say this, the original question makes sense.
