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 :)


(w00t 1000th post - ok not a big deal to some of you but is to me :p)
tried that couldnt get it to work - mind you only looked at it briefly - had some work to do - did have the link to that page - guess i forgot it :eek: , also does vsftpd do crc checking of files as they are upload if there is a md5 or sfv file ?

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 ./ !!
probably want some kind of chroot setting within the configuration
tried that too - same happens - i'll have to have another look later, i bet i have cocked something up

edit: i managed to sort it :)

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
