Need help setting up "ftp only" user account with vsftpd
When setting up ftp users, is it possible with vsftp to allow a non-anonymous user ftp access, without them having a shell set?
i.e. their shell is /bin/false (for security precautions), but vsftp's "local_enable" setting only allows ftp login from users in /etc/passwd that have a usable shell (/bin/sh, /bin/bash, etc).
i'd like to set an account's shell to /bin/false but still be able to access ftp. so the account has ftp access but no ssh/shell access.
Long story short, I want an account that has access to the ftp server and nothing else.
Running Ubuntu Server 10.04 + vsftpd 2.2.2.
I don't think there will be any problem with a /bin/false shell, as long as it's included in /etc/shells.
(marking as solved)
