FTP access on HP-UX 11.31

Dear All,

I am able to FTP my 11.31 server by user root but not by any other user. There are no ftpusers or ftpaccess files.
Request your help on configuration.

Warm Regards,

Jitendra

inetd.sec works on a hostname basis, not on users...

Re: FTP access on HP-UX 11.31

"I am not able" is not a useful problem
description. It does not say what you did.
It does not say what happened when you did
it. As usual, a transcript showing actual
commands with their actual output can be more
helpful than vague descriptions or
interpretations. With my weak psychic
powers, guesswork follows.

> [...] any other user.

And these other users can log in
interactively with no trouble?

Who is using which shell?

man shells

> #man ftpd

And look for "shell".

Hello All,

The issue was due the user shell.
Created file /etc/shells and added the user shell.
Issue is resolved now.
Thanks for the support from all.
