wu-ftp question


Where do we find the userID called anonymous in the configuration file? It is working without password, but I want to see where they configured. Thanks in advance.

I'm confused by your question ... IIRC in.ftpd doesn't really use a configuration file, but if there is an account called ftp with a valid shell in /etc/passwd then anonymous logins are allowed, otherwise they are not. The "password" specified is recorded in /var/log/xferlog for anonymous users. Most people no longer use wu.ftpd (it has had a bevy of security issues in the past and there are ftp daemons with more features available).
