Lightbulb VSFTPD config improvement

Hello I'm Leo.
It's my first post .... I don't speak english ... but i will to do my best effort
I use VSFTP for ftp server.
I have see some "problems" in the standard config of vsftp. for this... i use one file (/etc/vsftpd.users) where i put (1 per line) users allowed to login on ftp service and what don't be allowed to "go out" of their home directory.
Is posible add the funcionality of put login name in that file when a new ftp user is added ??

For that i use the next config in /etc/vsftpd.conf:
## Allow local users to log in.
## Enable any form of FTP write command:
## Users listed in this file only can view yours home directory:
## Only enable users listed in this file:
## Allow to use /bin/false as user's shell:

That's all for now ...
cheers for all !!!

Hi Leo,

looks like a interesting setup. Which problems do you get with the default ISPConfig FTP configuration? Chrooting to the users home directory is possible with the default configuration too, or do you chroot to other directories then the users home directory?

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

Hello!! thanks for reply!

Whit the standard conf chroot don't work for me. I have make some probes and nothing. In addition, i "need" that only some users can use FTP (i.e. don't allow mail users), but only this (i.e. not ssh-> shell=/bin/false). Even i use AllowUsers in sshd_conf ... but... i want a system "very closed"

OH! i'm using slackware if it help !!

thanks again !!
