Users cant upload on PFTPD


Ive recently created a PFTPD server, and works ok... except a few kinks still on the configuration. I currently have a problem in which noone or at least the anonymous users cant upload to the upload folder. Id like to know what I need to allow this to happen.
Acutally, Id like to make it to were opnly registerd FTP users can upload, and anonymous users can just download. I dont know how to tell if thats working already becuase when I try to log in as anything other anonymous, it iginores the password (thinks it wrong) and doesnt let me log in. Perhaps I didnt set up the user correctly...

What program do you use to connect to your ftp server? And does the user you are trying to connect as have a valid unix username/password.

I assume you are using the example configuration file which shows how to make an upload directory. In addition to the rules in there you have to make sure the users have permission to write to that directory.
I think the simplest would be to make all your registered ftp users part of an regftp group. And then give the regftp group permission to write to the upload directory.

I don't know why it's not letting you connect with the regular users. Maybe a little more information might help. What error messages are you getting? What do the logfiles tell you when you try to log in?

most of the ftp programs set out today only allow anonymous to download not upload i have had to make a upload user with the /bin/false for the shell with a set for the chmod to make it full access to use a directory and make it a write directory i am not quite sure because i am posting this from school i will have a look at home when i get home* but check the man chmod and see what the command is for it
enjoy

the error message that I receive when I try to log in as a regular user is :


Incorrect Login


I check the login and its right, but still the same error.

That doesn't help much, what do the log files say?

check "man shells" and see if that could be your problem.
