Re: restricting user only for downloading files in ftp

if you only give the ftp user permissions to read the file systems he has access to he will not be able to right anything, effectively disabling mput or put.

On what?

uname -a

The normal file permission scheme works for
an FTP user, too. If you want something more
restrictive, then you might try:

man ftpd

and look for "guest". A Forum search should
find many, many old threads on that topic.
