Proftp assistance


Hi,

Sorry for posting what may seam as a real easy thing.. but I don't get proftp, and I've been asked to set it up in the following way:

I need a setup like

/ftproot [user: alligator - full access]
/ftproot/supplier1 [user: supplier1 - full access / alligator - full access ]
/ftproot/supplier2 [user: supplier1 - full access / alligator - full access ]
/ftproot/supplier3 [user: supplier1 - full access / alligator - full access ]
/ftproot/supplier4 [user: supplier1 - full access / alligator - full access ]
/ftproot/supplier5 [user: supplier1 - full access / alligator - full access ]
/ftproot/supplier6 [user: supplier1 - full access / alligator - full access ]
/ftproot/supplier7 [user: supplier1 - full access / alligator - full access ]
/ftproot/supplier8 [user: supplier1 - full access / alligator - full access ]
/ftproot/supplier9 [user: supplier1 - full access / alligator - full access ]
/ftproot/supplier10 [user: supplier1 - full access / alligator - full access ]
/ftproot/supplier11 [user: supplier1 - full access / alligator - full access ]
/ftproot/supplier12 [user: supplier1 - full access / alligator - full access ]
/ftproot/supplier13 [user: supplier1 - full access / alligator - full access ]
/ftproot/supplier14 [user: supplier1 - full access / alligator - full access ]
/ftproot/supplier15 [user: supplier1 - full access / alligator - full access ]

i.e. alligator can login as alligator and see all supplier subdirectories, but supplier logins can only see their home directories (chrooted)

Supplier 2 - 15 are different accounts.. Obviously.

How would I go about doing this? I've installed proftp by using apt-get install proftpd (im running debian from net-install)

Any one assist..

Cheers

hi there carlp.

The one way that i know this can be done is to add a user for each of the ftp users you want and whilst creating them you make their home directory the /ftproot/supplierXXX directory. also create a usergroup for the suppliers and make them all members of that group.

this way when they log-in via ftp they wil be sent to there home directory, which would be /ftproot/supplierXXX.

to keep each supplier in their own directory you need to add the line

DefaultRoot ~ suppliers
if you made a supplier group then all suppliers logging in via ftp will be locked to their root directories.

another way would be to use virtual logins. i haven't tried this but i've read about it in the documentation for proftp.
you can look it up and see how to set that up. or search the forum and see if anyone here has done it that way and can show you how.
good luck
