Using THIS I was able to get virtual users working via standard ftp. After wrestling with selinux and such I'm able to log in as a user defined in the virtual-users file.
At the bottom is the vsftpd.conf. I can start the server no problem. I've been making edits to it so I'm not sure what's right/wrong at this point in it. I have a snapshot I keep reverting to where ftp works with virtual users and then I start monkeying with it again.
First problem I have is I'm not exactly sure how to test it. If I use WinSCP, I try SFTP and in the vsftpd.log I see:
I'm using vsftpd as my FTP server. I have set it up so I can access my home directory via FTP, requiring my login.
But I want to make a folder in my documents (or anywhere really), which only my colleague can access. But I don't want to make a local Ubuntu user account. He just needs to be able to send files to this folder, connecting remotely, using his own login details.
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.
I've setup a Lamp Server for Testing, The Lamp Server is Up & Running on CentOs 5.5
I am now trying to setup a VSFTP server where local users can upload files to there home directory so that Apache can serve web pages straight from the directories of system user home/accounts giving users the ability to run their own web sites which are hosted off the main server [tutorial here: [url]
So far i have been able to serve/display index.html files from the users home directory [url] but so far i cant upload files to any user home directory, every time i try to upload a file with filezilla i get this error message: 553 Could not create file. Critical file transfer error
I have searched online for similar problems like mine and so far i've tried alot of the solution but none seem to work. I'm confused, dont know where i went wrong, i put the users in a group called ftpusers and here are the permissions on the users (test, ftpuser & testftp) home directory. have a look an tell me where i went wrong :(
Also the root directory where the web pages are served from is called public_html here are the permissions
Here is my vsftp.conf file can someone check it to see if i made any errors in there:
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 have an RHEL 5.3 system where NIS logins are working perfectly, but authentication doesn't seem to be working for non-root local users. I can't login either remotely or at the console with a local user, and I can't even su to them unless I'm doing so from root (i.e. when no password is required).
I've reset the password, I've deleted and recreated the user, and nothing. nsswitch.conf does have "files" listed as part of the config, which was really the main place I'd have assumed the issue could be. su gives "incorrect password", and ssh gives "userauth failure". /var/log/secure shows "su: pam_listfile(su:auth): Refused user <username> for service su", and same for the ssh attempts (with ssh in for su, of course). I've reviewed my pam.d files, and they seem to be the same as on a working machine, but I'm not 100% conversant with pam so I might be missing something.
I'm testing a Debian Lenny virtual machine to simulate my ideal setup for FTP server (with vsftpd): I want all internal users (corporation users with Active Directory accounts) to ftp into the same directory (i.e. /var/FTP/AD-DOMAIN/) and external users (customers) to ftp into their home directories (created manually on request).
I added user_config_dir=/etc/vsftpd_user_conf option in /etc/vsftpd.conf file and I've created /etc/vsftpd_user_conf/domain-user1 with local_root=/var/FTP/AD-DOMAIN
I have setup vsftp so I can ftp with every external and internal user chrooted and is working properly. AD validation for internal users and "normal" validation (via /etc/passwd) for external users work perfect.
I can FTP this server into /var/FTP/AD-DOMAIN with any AD user with its home directory created (i.e. /home/AD-DOMAIN/domain-user1/) but if I try to ftp with any AD user without its home directory created I get the error "500 OOPS: cannot change directory:/home/AD-DOMAIN/domain-user2"
I have found some references (http://wiki.flexion.org/FtpServer.html and http://howto.gumph.org/content/setup...ies-in-vsftpd/) about vsftp PAM authentication so I would supposedly get rid of the error message and the user would log into /var/FTP/AD-DOMAIN without problems, but I can't figure out how to setup my FTP server.
I installed VSFTPD but when logging ( at command line or browser ) at any user always :
[root@srv vsftpd]# ftp 172.16.0.3 Connected to 172.16.0.3. 220 (vsFTPd 2.0.5) 530 Please login with USER and PASS. 530 Please login with USER and PASS. KERBEROS_V4 rejected as an authentication type Name (172.16.0.3:root): system
I m trying to use VSFTPD, but it is failed to login of local users, i did tried to login on localhost, it become login successfully on localhost, but taking much delay to login. and login become fail from remote computer. this is text of "vsftpd.conf"
I am having problem to collecting email from remote POP3 (all the emails for a domain is stored here) and distribute it after collecting to several users defined to Linux server. I have install postfix in Linux server for email distribution.
"Merging" may not be quite the right word but that is the desired end result.
Scenario: many Solaris 10 servers, each with various local users. We want to set up LDAP for all for all of them. LDAP server is set up, procedure for getting other servers to use it for user authentication is documented and tested. The question is how to handle users that are in LDAP who also exist as a local user on a given machine.
It appears that the usernames on both sides follow a convention and therefore match but obviously the userids will not match. Local user joe has userid 1234, LDAP user joe has userid 56789.
The way I see it we'll have to:
1. move local user joe's home directory to the path that LDAP user joe will want
2. change local user joe's userid to that of LDAP user joe
3. change joe's files' owner to his new userid
4. remove local user joe
5. finally configure LDAP
Is this a rational procedure? Is there a more effective method? I'm not looking forward to this as there are many servers and each of them have a different set of local users, each with different userids which will have to be handled manually and individually therefore not even scriptable much.
I installed vsftpd server in one of my servers using "yum install vsftpd" command. NFS server is running in the other server and mounted as "/data" in this FTP server. root in FTP server has also root authority in NFS server. All the files and sub-folders under "/data" in FTP server have 755 or 766 mode. Even I modified vsftpd setting to allow root login.
When I login as root to FTP server with FileZilla client, I can see all the file list in root home directory and move to /data directory. I can download any file in a local HDD but I can not download any file in /data directory.
I installed sendmail in RHEL5.4 with TrendMicro Spam scan engine. The configuration like sendmail should forward all the mails to scan engine after scanning it will deliver it to the mail domains. same way all the mails coming from external servers are scanned and the delivered to local box. My problem is when i sent mail for local users its delivered locally. but when i sending mail for external like yahoo its going through scan engine. I added the smarthost in sendmail.mc file also.
I open "man vsftpd.conf", it says syslog_enable If enabled, then any log output which would have gone o /var/log/vsftpd.log goes to the system log instead. Logging is done under the FTPD facility. Default: NO So I add "syslog_enable=YES" to the /etc/vsftpd.conf, and add "ftpd.* /var/log/ftplog" into /etc/syslog.conf. But there is no log infomation in the ftplog file.
I'm still learning my way around CentOS and linux in general... Using CentOS 5.4
BUT, I used the scripts from HowTo/Chroot Vsftpd and it did not work with the non-TLS script config, but the with TSL worked great. I wasn't sure where to put the vsftpd_virtualuser_config.tpl file but I copied it over when the script failed to find it... to where it was looking.
So I think it's working but my question is, TLS doesn't use port 21 but the script defaults to that port. I'm using FileZilla from an XP machine at work and I'm forwarding all the ports given in the HowTo. So I'm forcing the client to use TLS on port 21 but it hangs on the connection. If I use non TLS I get in but it tells me it requires TSL. I've had no luck with vsftpd in the past and this is my next attempt.
I have installed vsftpd by "yum -y install vsftpd",disabled anonymous login and set .When I use a linux client's file browser to login using a user account "ftpacc" by ftp://ip_address, its location is "/" instead of /home/ftpacc".When I use a window client to login, its location is "/home/ftpacc"
We are using postfix for relaying our internal system generated mail to other domain through google apps. All client servers able to send mail through the postfix server, only user of local postfix server(root, etc) unable to send mail with command like mutt, mail.My detail configuration given below:
I've only recently encountered this problem with vsftpd when I was creating new ftp accounts. I keep on getting:
550 Access Denied.
on every action I try to do on ftp, no matter what. I've been trying to solve this myself however my attempts have been futile.
The permissions, and ownership have been checked and rechecked tens of times now, so thats not the issue. I've reinstalled the OS of my server twice now, and the problem is still persisting. Heres my config file, this isnt for anon by the way.
Code: # Example config file /etc/vsftpd/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. # Please see vsftpd.conf.5 for all compiled in defaults. #
I already have this setup working in a debian server but I would like to setup the same in CentOS 5.3. I just copied all the configuration files to the CentOS server but I'm getting the following errors in messages:
vsftpd: nss_ldap: reconnecting to LDAP server (sleeping 64 seconds)... vsftpd: nss_ldap: reconnecting to LDAP server (sleeping 64 seconds)... crond: nss_ldap: reconnecting to LDAP server (sleeping 4 seconds)... crond: nss_ldap: reconnecting to LDAP server (sleeping 8 seconds)... crond: nss_ldap: reconnecting to LDAP server (sleeping 16 seconds)... crond: nss_ldap: reconnecting to LDAP server (sleeping 32 seconds)...
I set up my vsftpd server, but when using "sftp servername" it's not using vsftpd but another (what seems like) built-in sftp server. Even when I stop the vsftpd service I am still able to get a prompt to log in. I haven't installed any other ftp servers.
I would like to experiment a "green" idea of virtual desktop where multiple users are served by a single powerful machine.
I have a server running 24/7. The monitor of this machine is turned off most of the time and the OS is on the login screen.
Other users, in the same local network, use less powerful machines, which could be a thin client or an old Pentium 3 machine. They access their accounts remotely and work with the GUI as if they were sitting in front of the server. Each user sees their own desktop (different themes, screen resolution, etc.). And of course it can happen that several users could log in at the same time.
The usage is modest: mostly web browsing and the usual default applications (office, wine, gimp, etc.). In particular no games or any demanding applications. The users want to use their desktop in graphical mode only.
Question: How do we call this way of using a server? Is it possible with Ubuntu? And how to implement it?
I recently installed vsftpd on my server. I noticed that users on the machine can login into vsftpd with their username and password on the machine and go to their root dir "/home/username".Now, I want to give some people a vsftpd username and password so they can upload and download files and folders to their folder, but this folder has to be in the "/var/www/(username)" folder. I don't want them to be able to go to any other folder than their own folder like "/var", "/etc" or "/home" etc. Also I don't want them to be able to login on the machine as a user, through putty for example. They should only be allowed to acces their folder with vsftpd, nothing else.
