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!
