Re: Good "secure" FTP server - users

in /etc/ftpaccess add a line like

restricted-uid username1 username2 username3

this will make users that logs in with their username listed in the line above, kept inside their home directory. they will not be able to cd into other directories of the system, only their own home-dir and whats below.

remove "real" from /etc/ftpaccess and that will make it only
an anonymous ftp server

if you wanna deny secure ftp connections to some....its easier to
only allow secure ssh ( secure ftp) connections to only certain folks
listed in your ssh config files
