I am trying to setup a secure ftp site
using RH9.0, vsftpd and
I can ftp in locally (local_enable=YES) but
I cannot connect to my site from an external address.
The user accounts have been created on the
local machine and I can ftp to my box using both accounts and am able to
read,write and delete files. I am unable to move out of the local_root dir as
specified in vsftpd.conf file and , anonymous and ftp user access is denied. So
all seems well locally.?
(I want to give web developer write access
to the web site but restrict access to two specific external IP
Following contents of my config
only_from = www.xxx.yyy.zzz
log_on_failure += USERID
the Blah Ftp
//I have added my web developer to the apache group and chown to these files
// Aaargh!!! I needed to change it to this from pam_service_name=ftp
Thanks in advance.
