Anonymous ProFTPd access
Okay, I've searched this forum and I've searched the web. I don't see anything wrong with my ftp server, but it will not allow anonymous connections.
I can log in as an authenticated user, but when I try to log in anonymously, I get the following error:
Resolving host name domain.com...
Connecting to (domain.com).
Connected to (domain.com) -> IP: 0.0.0.0 PORT: 21.
Socket connected waiting for login sequence.
220 ProFTPD 1.2.7 Server [0.0.0.0]
331 Anonymous login ok, send your complete email address as your password.
530-Unable to set anonymous privileges.
530 Login incorrect.
Cannot login waiting to retry (30s)...
Obviously, my ip really isn't 0.0.0.0. I can log in just fine as an authenticated user. There is a ftp user and group. The ftp user doesn't have a password. Here's my config file:
# 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 "FTP Server"
# Port 21 is the standard FTP port.
PassivePorts 2120 2300
# Allow users ftp access without giving them console/ssh/telnet acccess
# 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).
# Time user can be idle (7200 = 2 hours)
# Set the user and group under which the server will run.
# Normally, we want files to be overwriteable.
# A basic anonymous configuration, no upload directories.
# We want clients to be able to login with "anonymous" as well as "ftp"
UserAlias anonymous ftp
# Limit the maximum number of anonymous logins
# Limit WRITE everywhere in the anonymous chroot
I'm simply lost. I've stared at this file for hours, and have no idea why it is failing. I'm running on Mandrake 9.0 with ProFTPd 1.2.7, and I know the version that comes w/ mandrake includes a proftpd-anonymous package, but assuming I have the correct config, I should be able to connect. I'm wondering if I have some incorrect permissions on the local system....??
Any help I can muster would be appreciated.
