I have an interesting problem.
According to the wu-ftpd guest howto
(ftp://ftp.fni.com/wu-ftpd/guest-howto), one can make a guest ftp
account chroot'ed by including the following path for the home directory
in the /etc/passwd file:
where /etc/ftponly is in /etc/shells, and is a script that simply exits.
I thought this would chroot the ftp session to the guest subdirectory,
but when I ftp as this person, I get:
230-No directory! Logging in with home=/
230 User username logged in.
And it does make the home directory the system /! Certainly not what I
I am using the Slackware release, 1.2.13 kernel, and wu-ftpd 2.4.2b9.
Any insights would be appreciated.
