I am running wu-ftpd on RH8.0. I am learning to set up guest user configuration. I have read many documents regarding that and what I understood from there is that we can set up guest configuration in two ways
1. using system wide passwd file (/etc/passwd) which contains the guest user's home directory in below format.
/guest user's chroot dir/./guest user's home directory relative to chroot dir
2. other way is to use guest-root directive in /etc/ftpaccess file
guest-root /home/users guest
which will chroot the guest user 'guest' in /home/users directory.
Am I correct?
Now the question is do I REALLY need to create bin, lib and etc dir in /home/users for 'guest' to login and listing and transfering files?? Because I
could login as 'guest' even without creating these directories. Just setting guest-root directive to correct chroot seems to be enough if I want chroot 'ed dir to be same as the initial directory of logged in guest user.
Please please reply soon. I have read many documnets but none talks about such scenario.
The users will not be able to get a directory listing if you do not put those files in there and give them execute permissions for that user. try logging in as that user and do ls on the directory. in my experience it will just hang, and then eventually disconnect the user.
