wu-ftpd and ~ftp/etc/passwd

wu-ftpd and ~ftp/etc/passwd

Post by lo.. » Wed, 02 Feb 2000 04:00:00


I'm made the upgrade from wu-ftpd 2.4.2 to wu-ftpd 2.6. There's one
thing I can't figure out is the following.
 In wu-ftp 2.4.2, I was used to define accounts in the ~ftp/etc/password
and ~ftp/etc/shadow file and now I can't no do it anymore. I made a few
test. It run ok only when the new account is defined in /etc/passwd ?
Is there any setting or configuration to get wu-ftpd using the
~ftp/etc/passwd and ~ftp/etc/shadow file ?
I have many public ftp servers, I would appreciate just copying the file
in this place instead of pasting it into /etc/passwd.

Thanks for your help

1. wu-ftpd on Linux 6.2 - no ftp connection with shell /bin/passwd

I have upgraded from Linux 5.3 to 6.2. Now I got the problem: Useres with
shell /bin/passwd can no longer establish a ftp-connection. Users with
shell /bin/bash can connect.
/bin/passwd is mentioned in the shells file
We have a school net with 600 users, all having the shell bin/passwd. I
want them to be able to connect identified per ftp.

Does anyone know solve the problem.

Bevore the upgrade all was ok.
