How to provide FTP access?

Hi,
I have created new user on HP unix 11.23 with Shell as /bin/ksh. Later i changed to /sbin/sh to provide FTP access, but after that my Perl scripts are showing syntax error, so i would like to provide FTP access to new user with /bin/ksh shell.

Re: How to provide FTP access?

Shalom,

ftp access is not dependent on the user shell. FTP access has its own, quite limited shell and does not use the shell provided in /etc/passwd

What you need to do on HP-UX is make sure the user is not in ftusuers file which blocks ftp access and see that the ftp daemon is running at all in /etc/inetd.conf

Check /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log for errors to determine the cause of the user problem.
