Re: secure ftponly account

Create an account that uses /bin/false as the shell, and add /bin/false to the /etc/shells file.

If you want a more secure environment, install wu-ftpd that comes with Internet Express for Tru64, and configure the account as a "guest account", so the user will be chrooted.

Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?
