Anonymous problem
Hi all,
I have setup ftp server with 4 users a1 a2 a3 a4

and set anonymous=YES in vsftpd.conf file

copied some files in /var/ftp/pub/ directory

gave chmod 777 /var/ftp/pub/

also made

[root@station24 ~]# getsebool -a | grep ftp
allow_ftpd_anon_write --> on
allow_ftpd_full_access --> on
allow_ftpd_use_cifs --> off
allow_ftpd_use_nfs --> off
allow_tftp_anon_write --> off
ftp_home_dir --> on
ftpd_connect_db --> off
ftpd_disable_trans --> off
ftpd_is_daemon --> on
httpd_enable_ftp_server --> off
tftpd_disable_trans --> off


when i login from other machine to this machine(


lftp anonymous@

i get logged in

but when i try to put anyfile which is created in local machine in /pub/ directory i am getting permission denied message.

why this happening and what's the solution?

check you FTP configuration file,
and also check all Anonymous settings in the same file

# Disallow anonymous users to upload new files (no = upload is allowed)

AnonymousCantUpload yes

Uncomment the line 'anon_upload_enable=YES' in vsftpd.conf, restart the service and try again. May help!!!

there is a fourth number to "777" like "0777" or "7770" for the archive, group and owner bit (sticky1 setgid2 setuid4)
"anonymous" should be member of group perhaps and might be at some linuxOS also have already a number like root=0 nobody=99
(I googled for that a while ago and found some answers but do not know exactly anymore)
