Ftp user without user's login in server

Hi,

Is it possible to create an ftp user without user's login (/etc/passwd) in the server?.

We want that the user could do ftps but that him don't enter enter in the server.

Thanks a lot!
Carme.
Users are not too bad ;-)

That's called restricted ftp user account.

man ftpaccess -> for more information
Problems are common to all, but attitude makes the difference

man ftpd

Look for "guest".


Often interesting:

uname -a

=> I think No

=> you can do this by assigning ftp user with login shell /usr/bin/false.User won't be able to login to system.
