This is not a how-to; it assumes you need only clues.

* Become root
* Create the structure necessary to host chrooted FTP:
ftpconfig -d /some/dir/name (being aware it will add /bin, /usr, /etc, and /pub to your specified directory, especially note it creats /pub!!!)
* vi /etc/group
add ftponly::21:
* vi /etc/shells
add /bin/true
* vi /etc/passwd
add ftp2:x:400:21:FTP user:/some/dir/name/./pub:/bin/true
* vi /etc/ftpd/ftpaccess
Insert these options
> guestgroup ftponly
> log commands real,guest,anonymous
> log security real,guest,anonymous
> log transfers real,guest,anonymous inbound,outbound
> upload /some/dir/name/pub * no
> upload /some/dir/name/pub /pub yes ftp2 ftponly 0666 nodirs
> upload /some/dir/name/pub /pub yes ftp2 ftponly 0666 nodirs
* passwd ftp2
* svcadm enable ftp
