1. How to prevent anonymous ftp w/wu-ftp

Hi folks!

   I have been trying to limit my ftp server to 2 users.  In addition, I
want to remove anonymous users altogether.  This is what I have done:

  1) added anonymous and guest to /etc/ftpusers
  2) removed anonymous and guest from the "class" line of /etc/ftpaccess

  3) added the following lines to /etc/ftpaccess:
                   defaultserver private
                   defaultserver deny *
                   defaultserver allow <user1> <user2>

However, when I ftp to the machine and enter "anonymous" as the
username, I still receive the following:
       331 Guest login ok, send your complete e-mail address as

I would like the utility to state something like:  anonymous users not

Can this be done with wu-ftp?
Did I do the "right" things above when trying to prevent anonymous

Thank you for your help.
