Newbie with a Proftpd question, here is the scenario:
I am trying to set up a FTP server, using Proftpd 1.2.9, with anonymous access. I currently have been successful getting anonymous access working. But, I would like to apply certain levels to security to areas that anonymous users can access. For example.
Anonymous user home directory is something like /ftp/pub
But, there are some subfolders that I want anonymous users to be able to see, but when they cd to them, the folder will require a password to continue on.
Basically what I am doing, there are certain files that are free to anyone who wants them and there are other files that are only to be made available to certain people. What I am trying to accomplish is a form of authentication, but being done at the subdirectory level.
To summarize, I want ALL users of the FTP to login as anonymous, see ALL folders in the anonymous home directory, but have some folders protected with passwords/login. Is this possible with Proftpd, or possible some editing of .ftpaccess config file in these particular folders?
