    Dollars to doughnuts, I'd bet that the user you created
has a shell that's not in /etc/shells.



1. Solaris ftp v Pro-ftp v WU-ftp

One-year newbie Solaris admin here. (And four yrs Linux experience extra,
that count extra credit?)

Management thinks they want an internet ftp server for the company.
they're mgt, and 'I serve at their pleasure'.. and paycheck. My questions:

1). why use a package like ProFTP or WU-ftp, instead of Solaris 2.6 ftp,
seems to me easy enough to use and cfg? (I'd ask them why, but that'd be
as 'a bad thing'.)
2). which FTP is 'better'? I've heard of WU-ftp security holes, but am not
with Pro-FTP problems.
3). is there a better way to go?

I'm guessing this is for external customer browser convenience, which will
make me
RTFMs soon enough, yet any other comments, suggestions, or insights would be
appreciated. Thank you.
