VSFTPD With Active Directory Authentication
I have a fedora core 4 box acting as a gateway router for an windows 2003 active directory Lan. I have vsftpd setup on the linux box and it work properly. I need to have all my AD users be able to access an ftp site but I want vsftpd to authenticate against the AD domain. I think this is possible with PAM and winbind, but Im not sure on the specifics. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

essentially you just need to configure openldap for client authentication. you can laregly just use system-config-authentication to get the LDAP hooks up and poitning it to an ldap server. after that you'd personalise /etc/ldap.conf to search the relevant parts of your AD tree. there should be no specific vsftpd configuration required, as it just hooks into the pam framework for authentication. once you can do a "getent passwd" and see the users in ldap, then *should* be able to log in via vsftpd. obviously you may still wish to control access via /etc/vsftpd.userlist etc...
