Add LDAP attributes and values for new user

You can use the iredmail tools to quickly create a new user including the PureFTP attributes and values.

cd /iRedMail-0.5.0-rc2/tools/
vi create_mail_user_OpenLDAP.sh

LDAP_SUFFIX="dc=example,dc=com" # <- Change the LDAP suffix
BINDPW='passwd'                 # <- The user cn=manager,dc=example,dc=com password
PUREFTPD_INTEGRATION='YES'      # <- Change form NO to YES,enable the pureftp inteegration

Run the script create the users user1 and user2. By default, the default password is same as the user name.

bash create_mail_user_OpenLDAP.sh example.com user1 user2

adding new entry "ou=Users,domainName=example.com,o=domains,dc=example,dc=com"
ldapadd: Already exists (68)

adding new entry "ou=Groups,domainName=example.com,o=domains,dc=example,dc=com"
ldapadd: Already exists (68)

adding new entry "ou=Aliases,domainName=example.com,o=domains,dc=example,dc=com"
ldapadd: Already exists (68)

adding new entry "mail=user1@example.com,ou=Users,domainName=example.com,o=domains,dc=example,dc=com"

adding new entry "mail=user2@example.com,ou=Users,domainName=example.com,o=domains,dc=example,dc=com"

 

7 Configure iptables

By default the ports 20 and 21 are not open. If you use the ftp client test, you need open the ports 20 and 21.

vi /etc/sysconfig/iptables

# http/https, smtp/smtps, pop3/pop3s, imap/imaps, ssh
-A INPUT -p tcp -m multiport --dport 80,443,25,465,110,995,143,993,587,465,22,20,21 -j ACCEPT # <-- Add 20 21 

Restart the iptables service:

/etc/init.d/iptables restart

 

8 Testing

You can use a Windows FTP client or the Linux ftp client lftp for testing.

lftp localhost
lftp localhost:~> debug 4
lftp localhost:~> login user1@example.com user1 # <-- type in the username and password
lftp user1@example.com@localhost:~> ls

9 Troubleshooting

Enable verbose logging in pure-ftpd.conf:

vi /etc/pure-ftpd/pure-ftpd.conf

VerboseLog                  yes # <-- change form no to yes 

vi /etc/syslog.conf

ftp.*                       -/var/log/pureftpd.log # <-- Add entry

Enable ldap logging:

vi /etc/openldap/slapd.conf

loglevel    256 # <-- change from 0 to 256 

Restart pure-ftpd, syslog, and openldap:

/etc/init.d/pure-ftpd restart
/etc/init.d/syslog restart
/etc/init.d/ldap restart

Monitor /var/log/pureftpd.log and /var/log/openldap.log for troubleshooting.

tail -0f /var/log/openldap.log
tail -0f /var/log/pureftpd.log
