Re: ftpaccess

Hi:

The manpages would tell you:

# man ftpaccess

(or):

http://docs.hp.com/en/B2355-60130/ftpaccess.4.html

Re: ftpaccess

Hi Himacs,

>>>please tell me the exact steps to follow to enable ftp banner <<<

you need to add banner entry in /etc/ftpd/ftpaccess file like below.

banner

There is another option you can use, which is message like below.

message login

ftpd will display the contents of the message file to the user at login time. Banner works similarly to the message command, except that the banner is displayed before the user enters the username and password.

>>>and also tell me ftpaccess path<<<<

/etc/ftpd/ftpaccess


Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Re: ftpaccess

Hi Himacs,

Yes. banner will displayed before the username like this..

#ftp server
Connected to server
<<>
Name:
Passwd:
<>
ftp>

Also note that change in ftpaccess file doesn't require to re-read the inetd daemon.

And also ftp service does not have any relation with ssh.
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

can't be....you went 2 days before looking again.


> whether we need to restart ftp..

once the changes you made in inetd.conf are made in the correct place, you should only need to "inetd -c"

=======================================================================================

ok...one last try here. assuming the "other server" is the 10.10.10.89 mentioned in the examples above, then you edited /etc/ftpd/ftpaccess on that "other server" correct? If not, thats where the change needs to be made...on the "other server"

> i edited ftpaccess file with banner=/etc/issue
>

....uh...no...isn't it supposed to be:

banner /etc/issue

"as noted previously by Ganesan R". go back and look at the man page for ftpaccess, it will tell you which is correct.

the changes in inetd.conf need to be made on the "other server" as well. the "inetd -c" should be all that's needed once the above is done.

there is no indication that you did anything but change the local machine. the changes noted need to be made on the server you are using ftp to connect to......
