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.

I know lots of things have already been written for Proftp (which also means it is not so obvious to install and configure) but ... despite all those messages, I did not find what I am looking for.
I would like to use proftpd on my mandrake 9.2
I just want to allow access (read / write) to 'anonymous' to the /var/ftp/pub directory.
I also want to make sure that any people logged with that 'anonymous user-id' can list/ updload / download / delete files from that (and only that) location.
It currently seems that I can upload file in /var/ftp but, once the upload is ended, the uploaded file is no more visible for the ftp connection. I can read this in the journal :
227 Entering Passive Mode (192,168,1,100,129,219)
150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for //Compiere_251.tar.gz.
226 Transfer complete.
Transfert réussi de /xxx/yyy/zzz à 98793,70 ko/s
SITE CHMOD 777 ///my_file_to_transfer
550 Operation prohibited for anonymous users.
227 Entering Passive Mode (192,168,1,100,129,221)
But I can see the file when I browse directly in /var/ftp/ from a terminal.
I guess that the error message after CHMOD 777 is a partial explanation.
I use gftp as ftp client.
What do I have to do to make them 'visible' after the upload?
What should the proftpd.conf file looks like?
Do I have to define specific users?
