Question vsftpd anonymous uploads


Hi.

Recently installed RH 8.0 to run an FTP Data Repository on my local network.

I chose the server install, set the firewall to high, and installed the rpm's for anonftp and vsftpd.

I have a problem uploading files using the anonymous account.

Here is my vsftpd.conf

anonymous_enable=YES
local_enable=NO
write_enable=YES
local_umask=022
anon_upload_enable=YES
anon_mkdir_write_enable=NO
dirmessage_enable=NO
xferlog_enable=YES
connect_from_port_20=YES
xferlog_std_format=YES
ftpd_banner=Welcome.
pam_service_name=vsftpd

I have created a directory in /var/ftp/pub called upload and ran the command "chmod 755 /var/ftp/pub/upload"

When I try to upload to the directory pub or upload I get a 553 Could not create file error.

I am guessing I havent set the access controls right or the .conf is wrong in some way.

All help appreciated !

I have just tested, chmod 755 <dir> does not give users the permission to write to that directory!! I think you should do chmod 777 <dir> to do that

loke137...thanks very much.

That was the problem. I was using 744 as recommended by RedHat themselves not 755, but you have id'd the problem.

Check this out... http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/l...erver-ftp.html

Thanks again

Theres no need to give anonymous users executable rights to the files on your ftp server. Would you want them to be able to execute programs on your server? I would go with:

chmod 666
