Create a group called ftpusers and restrict that group's access rights.
Add all such users to this group.

1. FTP access, but no shell access?

Running Solaris 8 SPARC, using the stock ftpd... I want to have users that can ftp into the machine (and eventually, I'll prolly chroot their homedirs), but who cannot telnet into the machine.  I tried just changing their shell in /etc/passwd to something that won't allow shell access (it spews out a little message that says "You're not allowed shell access here"), but then it replies "530 Login incorrect." when they try to FTP into the box.

Do I need to use a third-party ftpd in order to do this?  If not, then how do I configure it to allow FTP access to users, but not telnet?
