Slackware :: VSFTPD User Versus Login Shell Definition

Jul 18, 2011

I'm using VSFTPD on my office LAN for one simple task: to receive-and send - installation images created with Ghost4Linux. Until recently, my main LAN server ran on CentOS, but I decided to migrate it to Slackware (nicer release policy ).

What I usually do is create an 'install' user who can login to FTP, but not on the system. Here's an example of what I used to do on my CentOS setup:

Code:

# mkdir -p -m 0700 /home/ftp/install
# groupadd install
# useradd -d /home/ftp/install -g install -s /sbin/nologin install
# chown -R install:install /home/ftp/install
# passwd install

The relevant bits in vsftpd.conf looked like this on the CentOS server:

Code:

...
anonymous_enable=NO
...
userlist_enable=YES
userlist_deny=NO
userlist_file=/etc/vsftpd/user_list
...

Then I only had to create the /etc/vsftpd/user_list file and put a single line in it to allow the newly created user:

Code:

install Now I've tried to get the same behaviour on Slackware, and I succeeded more or less, except for one thing. There's no way my 'install' user can login to FTP when his default shell is set to '/sbin/nologin' (or '/bin/false'). Only when I change the 'install' users' default shell to a "real" shell like '/bin/bash', he's able to login.

Here's a little practical demonstration of what's happening:

Code:

$ lftp localhost
lftp localhost:~> user install
Mot de passe :

General :: Login As Other User Using Shell Doesn't Load The Profile For That User?

Dec 11, 2009

I am using the sudo command to log on locally as another user by the following command:

sudo -u theotheruser -s
or
sudo -u theotheruser sh

As I see it, this initiates a new shell with the mentioned other user.However, this doesn't load that users profile from his home directory.Is there a way to automatically read the users profile when login in with selected command? I am mostely interested in getting a working prompt when logged in.

General :: Shell Script To Automatically Login Through Ssh And Create User?

Oct 20, 2010

I was trying to create a shell script which will automatically login to the server 192.168.1.7 and checks if a user exists there or not, if it doesn't exist then it should create the user.I have very little idea about shell scriptThis is what I tried:Quote:

#!/bin/bash
pass="sacharje"
ssh 192.168.1.7

Now, how to pass that password automatically to the ssh when it asks for the password? (I can't use public key authentication here)

Ubuntu :: Timestamp Format - Shell Versus Cron Job

Jun 16, 2010

Setup: 10.04 server with "bash" as /bin/sh
When I run "ls -l" in a shell I get the following format:

Code:
-rw-r----- 1 syslog adm 0 2010-06-13 06:53 /var/log/user.log
Whereas if "ls -l" executes from a cron job the format is:

Code:
-rw-r----- 1 syslog adm 0 Jun 13 06:53 /var/log/user.log
Notice the different time format. Now I could fix this by changing the cron job to

Code:
ls -l --time-style=+%Y-%m-%d %H:%M ...
but I'm interested in knowing why this behavior occurs. What's different between the cron job and the shell?

I have a Dvd of Slackware as well as an Iso image of Arch.

All i know about the difference between Slackware and Arch is the stability, i.e. Slackware is more stable than Arch !

Is that all or there is some other difference which should be considered ?

Server :: SFTP User Adding For VSFTPD?

Oct 24, 2010

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.

Server :: Vsftpd - Keep Ftp User Inside Home Directory

Aug 22, 2010

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.

chroot_local_user=NO
chroot_list_enable=YES
chroot_list_file=/etc/vsftpd.chroot_list

CentOS 5 Server :: Vsftpd - Permission Denied On Login

Jun 2, 2009

I followed instructions from here: [url]

Everything seems to be ok but if I try to login it says following:

I have tried with numerous clients and accounts but still nothing, I cant get past the login. What may be wrong?

Here is the log from account creation, could the last line be causing the problems?

I had some hassle with the last two iptables lines but once I took away RH-Firewall-1 from those lines iptables gave no error anymore.

I changed this: -A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 21 -j ACCEPT

To this: -A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 21 -j ACCEPT

CentOS 5 Server :: Vsftpd: 530 Incorrect Login Regardless Of Username Used

Aug 14, 2009

I am attempting to connect to VSFTPD via Filezilla from a windows machine, but regardless of which user name I use I get a "530 Login incorrect" error. I have tried turning off the firewalls on both the CentOS and Windows side of things with no result. I disabled the SSL/TLS commands in the config file, also with no change. I tried a couple of different FTP clients, but got similar results regardless of which client I used. I have been going over man pages and documentation for a couple of days now, but cannot come up with an answer. I suspect it lies in my configuration, but I got the same results when I reverted my config file back to the original. what else I can do? One other note is that I am attempting to connect via a LAN, at this point I don't care if it works across the WAN as I only intend to use it to upload files to my web server.
