Re: FTP Rquest

Shalom,

1) ls
get
2) use cron to regularly create a .directory or other file name to make sure all ls commands run by a user will show file system utilization. bdf is a good command for this cron job
3) cron jobs can utilize ftp

ftp in general is an insecure protocol. The data stream and authentication is in clear text. If possible, sftp which is based on secure shell is better as authentication and data steam is encrypted.

man ftpd

Look for "SITE EXEC". I've never tried this,
so I know nothing, but it looks as if adding
access to something like "bdf ." (or commands
of your choice) should be fairly easy. The
user will need to ask the question, however.
