Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

In setting up VSFTP I would like to allow full public (read only) access. Public enough so that Windows users on the LAN can easier retreive files with IE without the need to type in a username or password. Security beyond that is of little concern since this sn isolated network w/o 'net access.
Here is my vsftpd.conf file. It works fine but requires a manual login with username of "anonymous". I would love to circumvent even that.
pretty sure that you can't just allow connections in without authenticating. If its on a LAN, samba may be a better option if typing 'anonymous' and a dummy email address is too much effort for your users...
Ok, I found the problem. The firewall on my workstation did not have the Ethernet device selected as a trusted device. As a result, when a passive FTP connection was made, the necessary port was restricted by the firewall. Once the network device was identified as a trusted device, everything started working perfectly.
Gaurav, thanks for the suggestions in the vsftpd.conf file. They worked!
