well, i treid solving this one on my own by googling it and i came accross another post on linuxquestions.org and wellllll....it KINDA worked..it actually made another problem...but anyway, im trying to set up ftp with pure-ftp on debian linux and i got so close to being done...then i noticed that the users i was making for the ftp accounts could actually log onto the server....so i need to have them able to logon to the ftp srever, but not be able to have an interactive login, like htrough ssh, on the actual server, etc...
heres the post i (sorta) read...
anyway, i followed this part on the page
Adding a user:
[root@fire root]# adduser ftptester
[root@fire root]# passwd ftptester
#dissallow shell login
[root@fire root]# chsh -s /sbin/nologin ftptester
anyway, now i those users cant logon to the server...great! guess what? they cant log onto the ftp server either! so! basically, i need to know how to restore those logon rights, then ban them from local and ssh logons...
i dont know what other info you need...so if u need anything, just ask and ill reply as soon as i can (assuming i dont fall asleep)
