Question vsftp server


Hi. I'm tryinf to create a ftp server using vsftp. In the vsftpd.conf file i said no for anonymous loggins. Each time i try to connect to the ftp site, it asks me for a password ( whish best fits my safety ), so i type my username and password (which im using to log on to the linux box) and it doesnt allow me access to the site.

How do i create users to log on to my box. Could someone please tell me what i'm doing wrong?
Thanks.

hi icedude,
the used login-user must have rights on the ftp-dir!

Question vsftp server

Hi. I got my vsftpd server to work. It's hard if you dont know how.

I wanted my users that i had to log onto my server. I "disabled" anonymous logins and chrooted my users in there home folder by
commenting out the following:

# You may specify an explicit list of local users to chroot() to their home
# directory. If chroot_local_user is YES, then this list becomes a list of
# users to NOT chroot().
chroot_list_enable=YES
# (default follows)
chroot_list_file=/etc/vsftpd.chroot_list

then create the file in /etc called vsftpd.chroot_list.

There are other and i think it is the easiest way to chrooted the user in to their home directory. put this line into your vsftpd.conf
Code:
chroot_local_user=YES
and comment those option you mentioned above.
I didn't said that it is wrong to use your way to chrooted user but you need to specify the user in vsftpd.chroot_list.

Anyway this is depend on how you want your user to access your ftp server, if you want only your users has access only in their home directory then my code will be better, but if you want some of the user only then you ca use yours

Hope this helps you.
