How can I turn off anonymous ftp access completely, so it will said
anonymous access not allowed? I've search thru all the documentation
out there, all seems tell you how to setup anonymous access, not the
other way around. I have wu-ftpd installed on RedHat 6.2.

Find the ftpaccess file on your system, probably /etc/ftpaccess.

Take a look at the 'class' directives looking for anonymous in them.
Be a good idea to read the ftpaccess.5 manpage as well.

You could either remove the "ftp" user from the /etc/passwd file or if you are
using Redhat 6.2 you should be able to remove the anonftp rpm package which is
on your system.  For example: rpm --erase anonftp-3.0-3

See ya

1. Turning Off Uploads at Anonymous FTP Site

I've inherited control of an Anonymous FTP site and would like to disable
uploads to it.  I've added this line to /usr/local/etc/ftpaccess:

uploads         /home/ftp/incoming/     *       no

But that won't do the trick.  Is this the right command or am I
way off?  I couldn't find any mention of how to do this in the man page.  
Technically I suppose I could just change permissions on the incoming/
directory or delete it all together, but I'd like to use the correct
method.  I'm using WU-FTPd 2.4.2 on FreeBSD.
