    Hi ya,

    I am having some trouble with ProFTP.

    I wanted to allow FTP access to my 3 sites I am hosting, trialling to come up with a solution as such.

    Thought the best way would be to allow the user (the client) to download the source off a single public IP address, would this be at all possible?

    So say if a user if they where say anonymous (not that their going to be of course), but say they where for arguements sake. would connect to an actual linux dir of /websites/mydomain/ftp would then send the user when typing in would take them to /websites/2nddomain.

    And so on for the next site...

    Would this be at all possible do you know?

    Would be very interesting, I dont mind having to say make maybe 2 new IP's virtuals off the eth0 which is my internet connection card if you like, would this be possible if needed?

    Too many questions I can appreciate but how would I do this if its at all possible?

    Just a bit clueless in ProFTP and wanted some help :confused:

    Thanks for reading and I look forward to any replies,

    Ahh I know what this is!

    When for some reason or other if I go through your tutorial for the anonymous account (even when I use the exact same user creation process), it still asks for the password, hmm weird on mine anyways.

    But if I say copied the details from the ftp account (setup for proftp) it works if I change the user settings in proftp for the anonymous account to the new one copied off the ftp with the new user name like ftp_anon for example, it works.

    Weird eh?

    Works though, now just trying to secure it, got my firewall probing the ports for scans though aswell, which was a worry too!

    Thannks for your help though!
