    I am running a proftpd server on Fedora Core 6.
    A long time ago I used to run a proftd server on Mandrake 10.
    Since then I have lost/forgot how I set up the proftpd.conf file
    for teh following:

    I want to have "FTP Users" on the system that only can FTP
    but not log in "normally" through say Putty...

    I have a vague memory that I entered users in proftpd.conf like:
    User, password, some default dir? like:
    John, crowbar7, /ftpsusers
    Pete, mooncow19, /ftpusers
    etc etc

    Also I think I made some change in their /home with .bash?
    to unabling them logging on anything but proftpd.

    To clarify:

    I want proftpd users who cant do anything but ftp:ing and I want all
    of them to end up in a directory of my choice...

    Any help and suggestions are most welcome !!! :)

    Best Regards, Genin
