Secure Writeable Restricted VSFTP Site

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

Hi All
I am trying to setup a secure ftp site using RH9.0, vsftpd and xinetd.
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 addresses.
Following contents of my config files.
more /etc/xinetd.d/vsftpd
service ftp
        disable                 = no
        socket_type        = stream
        wait                    = no
        user                    = root
        server                 = /usr/sbin/vsftpd
        nice                    = 10
        only_from           =
        log_on_failure     += USERID
ftpd_banner=Welcome to the Blah Ftp Server
local_root=/var/www/                    //I have added my web developer to the apache group and chown to these files root:apache
pam_service_name=vsftpd             // Aaargh!!! I needed to change it to this from pam_service_name=ftp ;)
# Security
Thanks in advance.
