ProFTPD Anonymous Login
 
Can someone help me? I have set up ProFTPD to work as an anonymous server. I have created a directory /home/ftp/ there is also a user ftp this seems to have been created when I installed ProFTPD some time ago.

Looking at the login it seems to be working except when it comes to password do I have to create a password for ftp or for anonymous?
Code:

Status:        Resolving address of merciadragon.net
Status:        Connecting to 192.168.2.160:21...
Status:        Connection established, waiting for welcome message...

Hi,

You should post proftpd.conf, so we could help you.
Also have a look at the examples here to help you setup your anonymous ftp

Regards

Thank you for getting back to me. That was the config file that I was actually using. The only changes I had to make there was to allow for the directory to be read. The rest of the problems I have worked out. 1. FTP user did not have a shell attached to it. 2. FTP user did not have the required ftp group. Now I have made those changes all seems to be working correctly.

Thank you for getting back to me.
