Fedora Servers :: Vsftpd: Allow Remote User To See Configuration .files (i.e. Started From Dot)?
Feb 4, 2010
I'd like to configure vsftpd server in a way to allow remote user (local) too see and edit configuration files in their ftp directory starting from dot (like .htaccess, for example). With default configuration + "local_allowed = yes" it does not appear to be possible:user can successfully upload .file but could neither see if it is in directory nor download it.
I've just upgraded my serv from fedora8 to fedora12 and got a problem. The httpd and vsftpd add a junk in the beginning of html files. Png, tar and other files are ok. When I make a request to localhost everything is ok.
Code: #telnet localhost 80 GET /1.html <html> </html> but from any other computer.
Code: ..... But this is not an apache problem. When I dl html files from ftp I got the same problem. Iptables is swithed off.
I just set up my own server and basically my folder is on say /media/disk1/ and my girlfriends is on /media/patato/ is there a way i can set it so that if i log in it goes to my folder and if she does it goes to hers.... I've currently got it set up as /media/ that it goes to but i cant get it to change it for each user (we can also browse each others drive and we dont want that, we want to be tied into /media/ourdirectory and all of its subdirectories) problem is that it is running on a computer that use to be functional (same install because I cant find my disk drive) so it cant use home folders....
I am new to ubuntu and just installed the vsftpd service by this tutorial: [URL]. Now my question is how can I give users rights to one specific folder? useradd username -d /home/folder/new Thats the command id used but when I login to the ftp the user is able to see all other folders as well ..
I found that if any usual user is logged into a NDS-tree, then _local_ root has full access to user's network shares, including the user's home directory located on remote Netware-server. Is it by design or have I missed something? Nevertheless in windows local admin has no access to network resources mounted of any other user. If you runas shell (as admin) then admin in principle can't "see" network shares which were mounted (connected) by other users - they are accessible ("visible") per session.
1- I've set up 3 virtual users,one of them is a system one (with a different password) and writes on his own home folder. With this one I haven't found any problems yet, but with the other 2 users I can't access files/folders created by them. It's a permissions problem for sure, but I'm not sure how to correct it.With these users I can upload files, create files and create folders. The problem is I can't access what I create (I can't enter a folder I created but it is there and I can upload files into it).
2- Whenever I turn on ssl_enable=YES I can't access the server (even from the server itself when I connect to localhost, It's a regular Ubuntu installation).Here's the config file for the users:
how to add files (and where) for anonymous download. I installed vsftpd and configure /etc/vsftpd.conf file...just few common options like allowing anonymous,download,upload. And now i can login with anonymous. But i dont know what to do next, i want to try to download and upload files.
I have installed Fedora 12 x86_64 and vsftpd. I would like to set up an user for FTP so that he/she could only view/edit files in one certain folder (the one that I set up). How would I go about doing that?
If i got gnome i may go to the top-panel: choose system, choose preferences and go to "remote desktop" and make my settings (allow, ask for allow, password, and other stuff). I don't want to be bound to gnome (though i like it, thats not the problem).Which config-files are the ones i am looking for?
I did search the web, but i can't find useful how-to's, explanations, etc.Cause what i find is related to the path i described above (gnome: top-panel, preferences...)Which is the app/tool which pops up and says:"someone wants to access, you want to allow it, yes or no?". The performance of VNC is lousy comopared to NX. Lousy is the friendly version. What might i be doing wrong?i usually do it from a Debian-host to a VirtualBox-guest.I am mainly asking for how-to's/docus and stuff like that. Links. Explanations are welcome too. Of course.
i've set a server Fedora 11 using Vsftpd + database berkley + ssl 'certificate) he works perfectly. So i wanted to set a new one on Fedora 14, there is the problem..On my fedora 14, i tryed to use the configuration file that i've made on the F11 but withtout success. It seems that when i activate the SSL option on the server it does not want to start anymore... and i have no errors messages. I notice that when i desactivate the SSL "ssl_enable=NO" my server on F14 can start normaly.
I'm rather new to Fedora server, but I'm attempting to run a music FTP server, where anonymous users can submit songs into one particular folder (so i can personally tag them), while other user accounts have full read-write. Here we go: I 2 directories, /music and /untagged
I want anonymous users to be able to read both directories, but only be able to upload to /untagged, and not be able to delete anything. I want users that I select to have full read-write-create-delete privileges. how would I go about this with vsftpd?
Vsftpd virtual users, when a user connects via of ftp they can view all files in the file system. Have a virtual web server and vsftpd working, each user's username is their domain name. FTP works, but not the way I wish for it to work. I only wish for a user to be able to view the files under their username, not the entire Fedora file system and limit changes to files ONLY under their domain name.
I am running vsftpd-2.2.2-3 on my Fedora 12 box. This box has multiple IPs. What I am looking for is make vsftpd listen on those multiple IPs and when a user FTPs to a certain IP, they get landed to the home directory that has been configured for the IP.
This feature is there in Proftpd and is called virtual hosting. I tried to find for Vsftpd such feature, but couldn't find out exactly how to implement in it. how to implement virtual hosting in Vsftpd?
I have limited access to several servers (key based auth) but cron facility is not available for me. Those servers getting filled up by large apache logs and I have to login to each node manually and clean them each and every day.
I tried to write a script to run from login box but when i try that it looks like it is looking for logs in the local server (login box).
So current situation is:
How can i modify this so that the script in server1 will look for files in that server and zip them?
Google showed another command called rsh but in my env it is also not avil.
I've run into what is apparently an age-old SSH problem, which is that killing an ssh client process does not kill the remote process (unlike e.g. rsh). There seem to be lots of patches and a couple of open bugs on this topic that have been there for about 10 years or so... Having convinced myself by googling that there is no easy solution, I'm now looking for a workaround of some sort. I'm writing a testing framework so the processes I'm running remotely could be anything at all, i.e. I only have control of the client side. Also the remote processes are of course highly unstable and I need to be able to terminate them if they hang. ssh -t won't work for me as I don't necessarily have a terminal. Finding the remote process ID would be enough so I can do ssh <machine> kill <pid>, but I don't see any way to do that either. Just using ps, pgrep etc seems to suffer from not being able to uniquely identify the correct process, and killing the wrong process is of course very bad.
This morning I ran sectool (in terminal for the first time. Before that I used sectool-gui) and I got this (written to file)...
See attachment please..
I think... the user "Jetty" may be a part of (or has something to do with SQL?).. This machine I have is not a server (in fact I know pretty much nothing about web servers).. this machine is used purely for local app development (python PyQt4/ and C++/wx - making games, general utilities, specialized calculators...etc)
So... Can anyone please tell me who the user "Jetty" is ? (The others are safe, I compiled python/SIP/PyQt4/wx/aliens from source... so that;s probably why it doesn't belong to packages.
Plus, My screen started to flicker some time (could it be possible someone is messing w/ my xorg configs?)
My apologies if this is the wrong board for this thread, but seeing how the issue appears to be related to where I'm connecting from, I thought this would be the place to look.To start off, I've been running VSFTPD on the box for a good year or so now. Until recently, everything seemed to be working fine, but during the past few days I've run into issues with it and have been having trouble pin-pointing the problem. I've gone as far as reinstalling VSFTPD and rechecking every line in the conf file to no avail.The issue presents itself when I try to login to the FTP server remotely. The moment I put my user name in, I get disconnected without any error message, simply connection closed. That isn't the case when I'm connecting locally from the server.If I try to connect remotely using eth0 (internal network), it works fine again... but if I try eth1 (external network)... it fails. I'm thinking it might be related to PAM, but so far have been unable to figure out what I need to change in the configuration there. Additionally, the PAM log file doesn't show any activity if I'm connecting through eth1, but displays it if connecting through eth0.
On a Fedora Core box, I have a normal non-privileged user and I also have sole access to the root account. Because I am the only administrator of this box, I frequently su over to root for administrative tasks. The problem is that many of the user configuration I've become accustomed to are only configured on my day-to-day account (.vimrc, .bashrc, .screenrc, etc). Other than giving my day-to-day user account privileges to perform administration tasks, how would I go about sharing configuration between these two accounts?
I've setup vsftpd correctly and it's running fine with local users (in the same LAN). However, when remote users wanna login to the server, it takes more than 1 minute to get in. Users do can login from remote. It just took too long. (It prompted for the username and password very fast.) Since the server is behind a router, I did configure the port forwarding for TCP 20-21. The centos version is 5.3. The vsftpd is v2.0.5.
