I can't seem to get last logged in dat/time for vsftpd users. They are linux users maintained within passwd groups ect ... i think this is because ftp doesn't actually give them a real session. That being true, how do i get the last logged in time for my ftp users?
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 a NIS master server and 4 NIS clients. out of 4 nis clients two are acting as login servers ie users will login and do all their stuffs and the remaining two are application servers. But sometimes users login into applications servers and started doing all their developer's job. i want to allow only a limited number of users tointo this application users not all the users who are all part of the nis domain.all the systems are running RHEL 5.4 on hp's proliant x86_64 based servers. Please advice me how should i proceed? enabling ip tables is not possible in my environment.
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"
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.
I've set up password-less login for user1 on a Ubuntu machine to login automatically into a Fedora box using the publickey authentication method. Everything is working smoothly. Now, there is a user2 on Fedora but he does not have an account on Ubuntu.
I tried to login as user2 from Ubuntu to but got the following error :
Predictably neither scp or sftp work either. I have several questions as a result.
1.Is the SSH server rejecting user2 login because I am inadvertently using user1 keys (as I am logged in as user1) ?
2. Do I need to have a user2 account on Ubuntu and public/private key authentication setup with Fedora for user2 to be able to login ?
3. Is there a method I can use to password login as user2 from Ubuntu to Fedora (even though there is no user2 account on Ubuntu) AND still keep password-less login for user1 or do I have to have password-less login for both ?
At present the only way to access the user2 account from Ubuntu is to SSH using the user1 account and then su to user2.
I'm using vsftpd on my server. When I connect (using file-zilla) from other computers on the same network I can't download any files. I can upload, create directories, and delete stuff, but I can't download. I've disabled anonymous access and enabled local user log-in. My /etc/vsftpd.conf
Code: # 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. # Please see vsftpd.conf.5 for all compiled in defaults.
I have many clients uploading to the same directory.
I have set chmod to 733 and chown to another user on the upload folder so that the different clients do not see each others files, but that also causes the client to not see their own files after they are uploaded or not being able to resume broken uploads.
I would like the different user log in with their own username and password but all upload to the same directory and not see each others files, but just their own. Is this possible? Or does anyone have a tip how to achieve something similar?
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'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 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 recently installed Ubuntu 10.4 - and used it quite successfully as the adminstrator user. But when I add additional users they can't login - to be exact, their password is accepted, and they get a screen with nothing except Ubuntu's pink/purple background.The mouse pointer moves around but clicking the mouse does nothing.
I created some users on my Ubuntu 10.0.4 machine a long time ago (whilst experimenting). Some of these users can login to the system, and others were prevented from login in. I can't remeber which ones can login. I have the following questions:
How do I find out which users may login to the machine? How may I disable an existing user account from login in? How may I re-enable a previously (login) disabled user account so it an login again?
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 getting "530 Login incorrect" error message when trying to connect vsftpd server through ftp.
I have vsftp executable and configuration file recieved from windriver. earlier i was not able to run this executable, but after few changes in vsftpd.conf now i am able to run vsftpd server. But when I try to connect to this server from another system I am getting above error.
I am using qmailserver. I login through webmail but today I installed openwebmail instead of webmail. Its ok, but I cannot login my existing users. It login only new users which I created. and email id come with fully qualified name like firstname.lastname@example.org, so I need email@example.com. How I do this?
I use vsftpd, i disabled anonymous users. sometimes i look at the log-files. and there are much entries from bots. they try to connect to the ftp with users like apache or tomcat. they try it 10, 20, 30 or more times. can i block them with vsftpd after 5 failed logins for 1 hour or something like this?
I have installed ipcop v 1.4.21, and addons TCAR and Ipcop-Advanced proxy.Now i want a login script for users on the green interface. So that when they start using internet, they first receive login page (or even through a login url page), and if they are idle for particular time, they should disconnect automaticaly. and users can check their bandwidth usage and time usage on this page.
I'm running CentOS with cPanel, configured to update every night.This morning my SSH login time was really slow:Code:login as: firstname.lastname@example.org's password:After this step it takes about 60 seconds before I get logged in:Last login: Sat May 30 15:27:54 2009 from addr-no109.tbcn.abc.comchrille@homer [~]#I have also noticed that my PHP SOAP (network communication) calls has been really slow, and I sometimes get e-mails saying that exim is out of tcp connections.Seems like something has updated wrong this night, but I can't figure out what. I have looked in /var/log/messages and /var/log/secure, but they give me no clue.
