Being able to record the original login id of an anonymous FTP user.....

Dear all,

I have always wondered how I could record the login id of an anonymous FTP
user??  I know PC/Mac's can also FTP from a site, but I am wondering if their
is any easy way to do so??

  There are several versions of fptd that will log the remote host and
entered password of anonymous ftp logins if they are run with logging enabled
(with "-l" specified on the command line or with the source compiled with
logging defaulting to 1).  The version installed on your system right now may
even do this.

  One of these is the version of ftpd in the /bsd-sources/libexec directory on
ftp.uu.net, although you might have a bit of trouble compiling it if you don't
have an ANSI C type system.  Another is, quite possibly,
/networking/ftpd.tar.Z on ftp.uu.net.

  In fact, logging into archie on quiche.cs.mcgill.ca and searching for files
named "ftpd.tar.Z" yields over 40 matches.  I'm sure at least some of them
will do the logging you desire.  "ftpd.shar.Z", "ftpd.tar" and "ftpd.shar" all
also match some sites.

  If you really want to be able to find out who's connecting, rather than just
who they say they are, you might be able to use an "auth" server (if the
remote host is running it) to verify the username they enter.  Check out Dan
Bernstein's "auth" and "authutils" packages, probably in comp.sources.unix to
see what I mean.  Although this is probably more than what you're looking for.

1. Not able to login under a certain user ID due to swap space issue

Hi,

  The following is the message in /var/adm/messages:

[ID 470503 kern.warning] WARNING: Sorry, no swap space to grow stack
for pid 5498 (login)

  I get the above message whenever I try to login using a certain
account.  I DO NOT have problems logging in as "root".  So, I opened 2
windows and logged in as root.  On one window I ran a "tail -f" on
/var/adm/messages and on the other tried telnet onto the same box with
the userID which was getting thrown out.  Every time I tried logging
in, I saw the above message pop-up (ofcourse with a new pid every
time) on the tail.

  The following is the "df -k" output:

Filesystem            kbytes    used   avail capacity  Mounted on
/dev/md/dsk/d12      18809743 1164155 17457491     7%    /

  Any thoughts?

Thanks,
  Bala.
