FTP access using root account - restrictions


I successfully installed wu-ftpd and enabled root FTP (using the tips in this forum).

But after logging I can not go to the directories. There are restrictions applyed. I would like to remove those restrictions.

Any Thoughts?



R:\>ftp 10.6.13.163
Connected to 10.x.x.x
220 wpspo11a FTP server (Version wu-2.6.2-8) ready.
User (x.x.x.xnone)): root
331 Password required for root.
Password:
230 User root logged in. Access restrictions apply.
ftp>
ftp> ls
200 PORT command successful.

Try adding root as a "realuser".

Note: root access through ftp is dangerous but if you are careful and your system isn't exposed directly to the net you should be OK

Could you tell me how to do it or where to get information about it?

I entered 'realuser ftp root' on the file ftpaccess. Things are better now. I do not receive the message "restrictions applyed" and I can go to directories, but I can not see the files within the directories.

230 User root logged in.
ftp>
ftp> cd /work
250 CWD command successful.
ftp>
ftp> pwd
257 "/work" is current directory.
ftp>
ftp> ls
200 PORT command successful.
550 No files found.


Thanks in Advance

Are the files hidden? Is it just this one directory or all directories?

Try "ls -lah" rather than "ls".

You could have at least hit him really hard with a cluebat afterwards.

wu-ftpd or root access ftp is bad enough, but both? This has got to be a honeypot

Thanks,

ls -lah showed the directories.

I will disable the root ftp permission after a while.
