I am trying to run proFTPd on a windows machine using cygwin.
So far, it works nicely. It installed and runs. It serves data and seems to run stable.
When i set it up to allow anonymous access (It's a home network, and behind a firewall, so only people in my home can acually get access -- i know that i am allowing the world to do anything......)
That works too, but i get a weired folder in my user's home directories. There appears a folder called "cygdrive", which has been created in 01 Jan 1970, 12:00 AM. It has world read and execute permissions. The folder is empty.
I am wondering how i could get rid of that annoyance.
That's my proftpd.conf:
# This is a basic ProFTPD configuration file (rename it to
# 'proftpd.conf' for actual use. It establishes a single server
# and a single anonymous login. It assumes that you have a user/group
# "nobody" and "ftp" for normal operation and anon.
ServerName "ProFTPD Default Installation"
# Port 21 is the standard FTP port.
# Umask 022 is a good standard umask to prevent new dirs and files
# from being group and world writable.
# To prevent DoS attacks, set the maximum number of child processes
# to 30. If you need to allow more than 30 concurrent connections
# at once, simply increase this value. Note that this ONLY works
# in standalone mode, in inetd mode you should use an inetd server
# that allows you to limit maximum number of processes per service
# (such as xinetd).
# Set the user and group under which the server will run.
# To cause every FTP user to be "jailed" (chrooted) into their home
# directory, uncomment this line.
# Normally, we want files to be overwriteable.
# Bar use of SITE CHMOD by default
#Example of a typical anonymous FTP configuration:
# We want clients to be able to login with "anonymous" as well as "ftp"
UserAlias anonymous ftp
# Limit the maximum number of anonymous logins
