The Pure-ftpd documentation
is convoluted on how this task can be accomplished, but I believe I understand enough.
There should be a line somewhere in a config file reading:
ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/tcpd /usr/local/sbin/pure-ftpd
ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/sbin/pure-ftpd
and this is where you will want to add authentication arguments.
Please note: I am taking a wild guess and I may not be correct.
The appendage would be:
- '-l <authentication>' or '-l <authentication>:<config file>': Adds a new
rule to the authentication chain. Please read the "Authentication" section,
later in this README file. It's an important section.
Addition documentation individual to each flavor of user authentication can be found at:
This is definitely guide material.
