trouble with 'ftpwho' and reporting logged in ftp users

Post by Mike Hughe » Mon, 16 Feb 1998 04:00:00

I'm having trouble with the 'ftpwho' command.  It doesn't seem to report
any logged in ftp users, even when there are four or five anonymous
users.  It doesn't even report users with a real account name.  I have
attached the contents of my /etc/ftpaccess file, can someone tell me
what's wrong?

1. 'last' reports users logged in erroneously...

Howdy y'all.  Little question here.  The program 'last' reports users logged in
on TTYs when they have actually logged out.  They have no processes left and
'finger' knows they are gone.  Why isn't utmpx updated?  Where does 'finger'
get its info?  I think 'login' updates these files with new sessions but who
is supposed to update utmpx when a session ends?  inetd cuz it is its child
that died?  It only happens in telnet sessions.  After logging in I tried
a special shell that forked and started a new session/prg-grp to release the
TTY.  The parent exit()s so the TTY should be release and utmpx updated but
the same problem persists.  Any clue?
