I am somewhat of an administrator of a basic linux network and we have two
or three machines running Red Hat 1.2.13 and 2.0. I need to know what I can
do to allow users ftp access but not shell access. I've changed the shell
settings in the passwd file to /bin/false but when I do that it kills the
users ftp access. I've looked in some of the ftp conf files but I haven't
been able to make a change that works. I figured the ftpaccess would do it
but it seems to operate in reverse logic, meaning if I put the user's name
in their then they can't ftp in.
Any ideas? This seems pretty basic but I haven't found any documentation
to help me resolve the problem. Thanks for listening.
