A WU-FTPD setup question

Post by defun » Sat, 10 Jan 2004 01:44:42

I'm running WU-FTPD on Red Hat 9. How can I restrict my FTP users
access to the parents directories?

Example: "/ftp/pub/download" I don't want users to be able to access
any directories above "/ftp/pub"

Consider using guestuser or guestgroup level access control. Having
done so, these users will have as their home directory /ftp/pub and
this will look like a root dir to them. They will never get above
this point in the filesystem.

man ftpaccess for more info.

Thanks Jerry

It works with "guestuser" I had it syntex wrong so it didn't work.
