recently we decided to make our own panel (like Plesk or cPanel) but for Ubuntu and it will be licenced under GPL (like any other professional sofware).want to make a panel not only that fits our needs but also the needs of other system administrators and domain owners. We researched other panels and found out that non of them has security/look/ease of use in one package. Bad codig is another problem found in other panels.I made a short overwiev of what I think we have to have in the beginning.I Security :1. Completely chroot enviornoment where every single service is in chroot mode (bind,mysql, postfix, .... )2. Easily managed IPtables trough web-based interface. 3. Coding rules has to be strict.
II Software selection : 1. MTA - Postfix 2. POP - dovecot
I am having an issue with a Chrooted SFTP User not being able to write files.
The permissions are setup correctly as if I remove the Chroot the user can write files correctly.
User has a transfer folder which they should be able to write files to and read from, this works correctly until I apply the snippet from sshd_config file below then the user can only read files. I have tried tweaking the permissions but this doesn't seem to have helped at all.code...
I have never had the packaged vsftpd start with the ssl_enable option set to YES. The mysql on those servers works just fine with SSL enabled. After reading there seems to be a different package available on rh5 repo. This server shows up to date with 2.0.5-12.el5_3.1. The rh5 list shows 2.0.5-16_el5 per this:[URL].. My question is, is there a set lead time till adoption of current RH packages or is just random? I have to have SSL_ftp running and didn't want to step out of the repo lists if possible.
I've been searching the web, without finding any sollution to my problem.vsFTPd is acting really weird. I've never seen this problem before, and I've been using vsftpd for some years nowWell.. The thing is, I've made a user that chroots to the folder /var/www on my server. And when I then try to chmod the file /var/www/htdocs/testsite/index.html through my ftp-client, I only get the error "550 SITE CHMOD command failed.", and when I then check in my /var/log/vsftpd.log it says
Code: FAIL CHMOD: Client "192.168.50.58", "/htdocs/testsite/index.html 777" Which I think would mean that it tries to chmod the file "/htdocs/testsite/index.html" instead of chmod the
I just installed Wordpress and i am delighted of it, nice peace of software. Even so I have to get running a FTP or SFTP server on my localhost machine. I did installed in my Ubuntu 10.10 the VSFTPD server and generated a RSA certificate file (vsftpd.pem). Strange it is that there is no vsftpd folder under /etc, instead vsftpd.conf file is directly into /etc ... so I have generated also my .pem file into /etc. Anyway I have a lot of trouble adding new users to access this server. I use Filezilla as SFTP client. Please let me know if you encountered such an issue, and what is the solution for it. Downwards is my vsftpd.conf file.
# Example config file /etc/vsftpd.conf # # The default compiled in settings are fairly paranoid. This sample file # loosens things up a bit, to make the ftp daemon more usable.
In the right upper corner of your screen,you can see if you have a network connection or not.Most of the time I do not have one according to Networkmanager (?).So I have to enable my wired connection manually.I already tried a lot to change my settings so I would have a network connection at boot,but it doesn't seem to work....Firefox is in Offline modus when I logon..
And I added umask 022 to the user login script problem I have: I login with user and password that exists as a local user on my suse machine. I can read and download from my homedirectory, but I cannot upload with filezilla. Then I get the error: 550 permission denied critical file transfer error
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.
I'm using Slackware 13.0 on my server and am going to be employing a file-sharing service for a client. I was able to enable a quota, but my problem now is keeping the user inside their home directory. I've searched around and found an old thread on here (from 2003) that gave me some ideas, but it still isn't working. Should I be running vsftpd standalone or leave it on the inetd? If I set the shell to /sbin/nologin or /bin/false, the user can't log in through FTP, even.

I am starting Debian in single-user mode since my video is not detected in X mode. I would like to start a script at boot time with Debian. I flowed the instruction from this page [URL] but is not working.
I started to work on building a ftp by vsftpd in our lab (that's only for our lab members). I am going to setup some the virtual users for each of the member. We have a CentOS5 (without upgrade after the fresh installation). I try several ways to setup the vsftpd for virtual users. 1) with db4 2) with mysql 3) without database and use htpasswd. But all fails. Actually, I don't want to use database, so I am going to find out the reason of failure on 'htpasswd' method
My vsftpd is installed in /etc/vsftpd (for only using ftp account, it is no problem to login).
1) I setup an account called vftpuser and build the corresponding home (/home/vftpuser), and then I setup another account call usera and also create a directory within /home/vftpuser.
2) I use htpasswd to add passwd to usera and store the passwd in /etc/vsftpd/passwd.
3) I added the name of usera to /etc/vsftpd/user_list
4) I create a directory /etc/vsftpd/user to store a unique conf for each user (for usera, the conf named usera) which contains the local root for users, which is
I am attempting to configure vsftpd to allow anonymous users to PUT files into a shared incoming directory. This would be like a dropbox for my customers. Ideally, the incoming directory's contents would not be viewable by the users.
I believe that refused connection is due to the PAM configuration for vsftpd.

I am running redhat ES 5 on a dell server and recently, I ran into a snag where I was able to reduce a partition (ext3) but could not run resize2fs (mismatch between physical and logical blocks (i never found a solution to this). In any case I decided to log in a single user mode (appended 'single' at the GRUB loader prompt) and now I am always taken to this single user mode every single time I reboot and can't seem to get out of it. I have tried init 5 (runlevel that the system is set to boot into by default) but that does nothing (no message on the # prompt).Of course, I have 2 problems here:
1) partition issue 2) cannot log out of single user mode.
My question might sound pretty nooby - still having my first Ubuntu cup after a Windose life Every time at logon i have to enter my wireless key - is there a way to save it so I dont have to enter it every time?
When I log onto my 10.04 server via ssh, there is the /etc/motd displayed. This motd is made up each time by the files in /etc/update/motd.d/. There is this one file : update-motd-reboot-required The content is exec /usr/lib/update-notifier/update-mot-reboot-required and the content of this one is : if the file /var/run/reboot-required exists, print it.
But who is making this file and why ?we know who it is: it's pam_motd.. but why would I reboot ??!?
I'm attempting to give a few buddies encrypted storage space through sftp using truecrypt.I have it worked out to the point where the truecrypt volume is automatically mounted when the user logs on, and dismounted when they log off.I would like to restrict each person to their individual home folders. This way, I can control exactly how much space each user is able to use (through the size of the truecrypt volume), while maintaining security through the network due to using SFTP.
I've been looking around, and the only thing I can see is restricting a large group of users to a single directory, this won't work, I need each person to be locked down to their personal home directory.My end goal is to have these volumes "mountable" in Windows through the use of Windows network drives (on a wide network, not through samba on local), or by using expandrive or a similar program. how I can lock these users to their respective home folders?
Is there a way where i can chroot their user home directory, lets say the user login on linux box /home/user, what i wanted to do is to chroot /home/user where user won't be able to browse the filesystem which is /. Tnx
Is there anyway to prevent a user from being able to logon at a machine (Terminal and XWindows) but allow that user to logon remotely using SSH? This user is for remote capture of logs only - on a private network (no internet access).
Its been two days over, after my search started . But I didn't find answer any where ?. I need to call chroot as part of normal user, but to my surprise it can only be called by SUper user with CAP_SYS_CHROOT capabilities. I am not sure how to add this capability to my user .
