I just recently installed wuftp because I had heard of the security benefits that
this version provided. However, instead of providing simple anonymous ftp
access, I need to be able to provide access to individual users that can "get"
and "put" files in their "home" directories only. (I don't want users to be able
to access other users' files.)
I have followed the instructions as best as I can tell, but am having some
problems. I created a separate filesystem /ftp which will house all the home
directories for these "ftp" restricted users. The bin and etc directories exist
under /ftp. I created a user called "ftptest" to test the setup. This id can
login but cannot do an "ls" (Permission denied) or "get" a file (Says there is no
such file or directory - but that is probably because the id cannot see it).
So far I cannot tell what I am overlooking in my setup. Does anyone have a good
write-up, explanation, or any help in getting this straightened out?
Thanks very much,
