anonymous users can't upload files-vsftpd


Like I said anonymous users can't upload files to my ftp server, im using the latest release of vsftpd. Heres my vsftpd.conf file, also i'm using xinetd...

vsftpd.conf:
Quote:
# Access rights
anonymous_enable=YES
local_enable=NO
write_enable=YES
anon_upload_enable=YES
anon_mkdir_write_enable=YES
anon_other_write_enable=YES
# Security
anon_world_readable_only=YES
connect_from_port_20=YES
hide_ids=YES
pasv_min_port=50000
pasv_max_port=60000
# Features
xferlog_enable=YES
ls_recurse_enable=NO
ascii_download_enable=NO
async_abor_enable=YES
# Performance
one_process_model=YES
idle_session_timeout=120
data_connection_timeout=300
accept_timeout=60
connect_timeout=60
anon_max_rate=50000
xinetd.conf:
Quote:
#
# Simple configuration file for xinetd
#
# Some defaults, and include /etc/xinetd.d/

defaults
{
instances = 60
log_type = SYSLOG authpriv
log_on_success = HOST PID
log_on_failure = HOST
cps = 25 30
}

includedir /etc/xinetd.d
if it matters im running RH9, the problem may be a permision problem because when the anonymous user trys to upload a file it says in the ftp client "Permission Denied' but the anonymous users can download files just fine. Im a little stuck on this one

EDIT: just noticed on the "local net sharing" tab when I right click on var/ftp (my shared folder) it says: Error running "filesharelist" Check if installed and in $PATH or /usr/sbin

dont know if thats related or not, but also when I try and change permissions of the var/ftp directory my changes don't save the owner always gets set back to root and the write abilitys check box always gets set back for only root. And yes I am trying to make these changes logged in as root.
This is frustrating because I got this setup in minutes easily with slackware and had no issues.

Thumbs up

by default it is not possible to upload files to /var/ftp
1. #getenforce
if it is disable or permissive you have to change this to enforcing
to do so
#vim /etc/sysconfig/selinux
then change
SELINUX=enforcing

then save and REBOOT your system. and follow below steps

step 1
#mkdir /var/ftp/upload

step2
#setfacl -m u:ftp:rwx /var/ftp/upload

step 3
#ls -ldZ /var/ftp/upload (by default it is public_content_t)
to change this

step 4
#chcon -t public_content_rw_t /var/ftp/upload

step5
#getsebool -a | grep ftp

if
allow_ftpd_anon_write --> off
you have to turn it on by

#setsebool -P allow_ftpd_anon_write on (-P for permanent)


step 6
open vsftpd.conf and edit these
#vim /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf
anon_upload_enable=yes
save file

#service vsftpd restart

step 7

#ftp <ip>
user anonymous(or ftp)
no password required just press enter
> cd upload
now you can upload to /var/ftp/upload using >put <filename>
