Using vsftpd, trying to enable anonymous write


I have vsftpd setup and running with Suse 10. I am trying to configure a simple FTP setup that allows annonymous login with full write access to my ftp directory.

I have no problem connecting and logging in anonymously to view the files in my FTP directory, but when I try to write to the ftp directory it still will not let me.

Here is what is in my vsftpd.conf file:

anonymous_enable=YES
ftp_username=ftp
anon_root=/srv/patdaq
write_enable=YES
anon_upload_enable=YES
anon_mkdir_write_enable=YES
anon_other_write_enable=YES
anon_world_readable_only=YES
anon_max_rate=0
local_enable=YES
connect_from_port_20=YES
port_enable=YES
syslog_enable=YES
log_ftp_protocol=NO

I start ftp by typing on the console:
chkconfig vsftpd on
/etc/init.d/xinetd start

Any help at all would be much appreciated

Idiocy...Hopefully someone will put teen-age porn on your server, and you'll go to prison long enough to learn to avoid multiple posting

Have you did:

Code:
chmod a+w /srv/patdaq
?

This enables folder permission to write by everyone
