I read the man pages you can let pure-ftpd bind to "ipaddress,port"
from the manpages:-S [{ip address|hostname}] [,{port|service name}] This option is only effective when the server is launched as a standalone server.Connections are accepted on the specified IP and port. IPv4 and IPv6 are supported. Numeric and fully-qualified host names are accepted. A service name (see /etc/services) can be used instead of a numeric port number.
I made a conf file:----->vi /etc/pure-ftpd/conf/Bind and put,1900 (ipaddress,port) into it and restarted pure-ftpd:----->/etc/init.d/pure-ftpd-mysql restart

Default Download only user

Hi all!

First of all, thank you for providing all these great guides and how-to's.

I have used the guide and have everything working accordingly (except that darn TLS that is bugging me, probably my router ).

I was wondering how I would go about to create a user that can download only, not an anonymous account, a regular user.

I browsed the net but have not yet found a solution.

Thanks in advance!

I don't have a finished solution or a tutorial, but basically you need a user that has only read permissions and no write permissions.
