RedHat 6.0 - guestgroups wu-ftpd

Post by Steven Dod » Tue, 05 Oct 1999 04:00:00

Hi All,

I'm fairly new to RedHat linux so forgive my ignorance:

While setting up a guestgroup using the /etc/ftpaccess file I couldn't
see any files when I ftped in - this was because I needed to include
shared libraries for the program ls.

I can fix this by including a lib directory in the guestusers directory
structure however this directory is over 1Mb in size and this eats up a
lot of disk space when you get a few users...

I would like to keep the users chroot'ed to their home directory it at
all possible.

I have tried symbolicly linking to the lib directory however this
doesn't work, I have also tried to allow guests to use a copy of the lib
directory outside of there home directory by using the /etc/ftpaccess
file with no sucess.

Am I doing something wrong - does anyone have a solution to my problem?



1. autofs + wu-ftpd 2.4.2 guestgroup = errors?

I have been trying to setup autofs for our FTP guest accounts, where guest
is in the sense of wu-ftp guestgroup.

Having setup such with NFS exported, hard mounted file systems many times,
I don't think I am a novice anymore.  However, no matter what I do,
using statically linked ls or not, with freshly created dev files or not
(chmod 666 too), anytime I tried to do a dir (or even ls), the dreaded

425 Can't create data socket (,20): Bad file number. message

showed up.

Yes, I have all necessary dynamic libs available in the usr/lib in the
guestaccount, etc/passwd, etc/group, dev/*, and of course, a *statically
linked ls (which was verified to work using chroot on command line).
However, I could never get a directory listing.  The message comes from
the ftpd.c in wu-ftpd distribution.  I have hacked part of that code
already.  Before I spend more time on hacking the code again, I wonder
whether there is anything I should be aware of?

Any suggestions/hints are invited.  Please email or post.
