There may be a deb package called something like "anon-ftp"
which sets up an anonymous ftp account with (very) limited
access (e.g. only to /ftp/pub). Most linux distro's separate the
anonymous access parts from the rest of wu-ftp for security reasons.
If you install and activate such a package you should read all
the security information at the wu-ftp www site!
I'm a relative newbie to Linux so bear with me. I'm trying to set-up a
buddy of mine for ftp access but I don't want him to be able to get out of
his "home" directory, but I want him to be able to do anything he wants
within his "home" directory. I went to this page on the Wu-ftpd web site
and followed the instructions: http://www.wu-ftpd.org/HOWTO/guest.HOWTO and
I'm able to log in as my friend via ftp, but I don't see any files or
directories (and there are some in there). The odd thing is that I seem to
be able to make directories but for some reason I can't see them. Does this
have something to do with CHMOD or is it something else. I have his "home"
directory set as 0755 and he is the owner while "client" is the group. Any
help would be greatly appreciated. BTW - I'm using RH 7.0.
