I am a Linux newbie and have searched the forums and can not find anything that helps me, so I have a question about configuring proftpd 1.2.10. I have proftpd configured and running on FC3 and can jail users to their home directory but I want to give access to a shared directory outside their home directory. I realize it is probably something really simple that I am missing so any help would be appreciated. Also, if there is any other info. you need just let me know.
Here is my conf file:
# Port 21 is the standard FTP port.
# Umask 022 is a good standard umask to prevent new dirs and files
# from being group and world writable.
# To prevent DoS attacks, set the maximum number of child processes
# to 30. If you need to allow more than 30 concurrent connections
# at once, simply increase this value. Note that this ONLY works
# in standalone mode, in inetd mode you should use an inetd server
# that allows you to limit maximum number of processes per service
# (such as xinetd).
# Set the user and group under which the server will run.
# To cause every FTP user to be "jailed" (chrooted) into their home
# directory, uncomment this line.
# Bar use of SITE CHMOD by default
OK, I had a little trouble getting your link to work, it came saying the article cannot be found, but I searched the site for proftpd and found an article about configuring proftpd, I don’t know if it is the same article but here is the link.
Anyway, I read through the article and found the section about “AnonRequirePassword on” but it says to put this inside the Anonymous section. I do not want to allow anonymous logins. So I am still a little confused on what exactly I should have.
