    all the ones i have googled seem a bit complex - all i want to do is have vsftpd running and have a few users on there, but i dont want to have to make the users on the box, i have read a few guides about using PAM but that just went right over my head.

    freebsd 7.0RC1 is the system i am using so need it to be geared towards that (any freebsd info should do really :)

    Thanks

    (w00t 1000th post - ok not a big deal to some of you but is to me :p)

    how do you get it to change the dir people see when they log on i have added local_root=/usr/storage/ftp to vsftpd.conf, but it takes me to the root of the system ./ !!
