Re: ftp access denied

Also have a look at the syslog so you can see why it won't let the user log on.

It can be that the users shell isn't in the /etc/shells file
Windows?, no thanks

Re: ftp access denied

Hi Arun,

The user should not be listed in /etc/ftpd/ftpusers file.

It would be better if you could provide the error message you are getting when the user login.
Best wishes,

Re: ftp access denied

Is it necessary that user should be present in /etc/ftpd/ftpuser file

because now i am able to do ftp i just unlocked the account but the user is not present in /etc/ftpd/ftpusers file.

Re: ftp access denied

Hi Arun,

Refer my previous reply. The user should not be listed in /etc/ftpd/ftpusers file.

Whoever listed in that file will be denied ftp access.
Best wishes,

Ganesh.
