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 just burned the iso of openSUSe 11.4 onto a dvd, and I make it through all of the installation. At the end it reboots the computer and starts in the kernel/command line or whatever you call it. I think it's kernel. Anyway, it asks for my username and password and then it says like "have fun.." () or something and then just has like my directory or whatever waiting for commands. Is there some command to start up the OS?
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 am building a new server on Rackspace Cloud. When they create an instance, it is a raw install. I have several other instances running Ubuntu 10.04 with vsftpd running just fine.But I have an app that doesn't like php 5.3 so I created a new server instance with Ubuntu 9.1 and php 5.2.Here is my problem... I install vsftpd EXACTLY the same way I've installed it dozens of times on Ubuntu 10.04. But when I try to access it, I get an ERROR 500 "vsftpd: cannot locate user specified in 'ftp_username':ftp. I'm SURE I'm using a valid username & password.
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 made a "test" server recently, put a samba + apache + vsftp server on it. The first 2 work but the VSFTP server is troubling me. On my lan it works. but on a wan: My ISP blocks port 21 so I changed it to 2200, my friend tried to connect earlier (With "ftp://myip:2200") and he had to type in a name and password, he did that (I made him an account)he got 425 failed to establish connection. Now I Re-installed vsftpd again, did the exact same thing and now it just wouldn't connect. saying the webpage can't be found. Question 1: What should I do to let a user acces from outside of my LAN? I think it's because of passive mode: but I have no idea what ports I should open for passive mode? My ftp port is 2200.
FileZilla tells me. Entering passive mode Command: List And than that it can't find directory's
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 just made a Ubuntu Server install in a virtual machine and am having trouble setting up FTP to transfer files. I've installed LAMP and vsftp. The web server works great, but FTP gives a connection refused error locally and remotely from the host machine. 'Connection attempt failed with "ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server".' nmap localhost doesn't list FTP as open even though I have vsftpd set to listen. I've tried restarting vsftpd with no luck.
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:
I recently installed vsftpd on my system and it was running fine for my system users. Now I wanted to add virtual users so I googled it, I found this tutorial: [URL]
I did what they've been saying over there but when I restarted the vsftpd I couldn't login with the virtual user and also not with the system user anymore. This is the error ( with the system user who could login before ):
On a whim vsftpd seems to stop working randomly and any attempted connection times out while waiting for the welcome message.It'll take a couple reboots and a couple "sudo service vsftpd restart" 's and it'll eventually start working again.AFIIK everything is at the most currant version. It just started doing this a few weeks ago.Here is my config file:
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 used for a long time Filezilla FTP Server on a windows server, for multiple users in my company around the country.Lately the windows box died and I said let's try ubuntu server 9.10. I configured to my best as a Samba file server and from a speed point of view it works even faster than the Winbox.Now getting to FTP setup, I had the following problem when setting vsftpd.How can I enable more directories for the user, each with its own rights. By example, in Filezilla I had two folders for each user: one was a specific folder in which he could also write, and the other was read-only. They were setup with aliases, so that when user login, he sees one continous list of folders.I tried with symlink, but couldn't do it. Also I searched through the man page but also did not find something specific for this task I would appreciate any help you guys could give me in order to solve this issue, using the best practice for vsftpd. Also note that I am open to other FTP servers as well.
I'm completely new to Linux/Ubuntu, but I managed to create a FTP server by using apt-get vsftpd or something.I followed a tutorial and modified a file called vsftpd.conf.I tried to disable all kind ofblocking/permissions. From a Windows client, I can connect to it without any login (I enabled anonymous) and I can download from it, but I am unable to modify it or upload files. Unless there is a better way to transfer files between the computers, how can I enable writing on the FTP server?
I'm setting up an ftp server with lucid server. A lot of the folders that should be accessible via the ftp are in different directories (and can't be moved without a LOT of hazzle) and I have to either symlink or mount bind them to the ftp chroot dir. Now I'm wondering which one is the saver variant? My guess is mount bind, but I'm not that familiar with the internal workings of linux and vsftpd (plus for symlinks I wouldn't have to change/create any scripts, just create them once...),
I've just installed Ubuntu server 10.04 and have set up vsftpd somewhat successfully. I can connect as my root user, and I only have access to my home directory. However, whenever I try to copy a file across a file I receive a 550 Permission denied error.
I've run the command ls -l /home/directory and the result returned is total 0, when I was expecting details of permissions per user. I've tried running chmod -w /home/directory but this doesn't return any result nor change the result of the above ls command.
I have installed vsftpd. When I run the command sudo service vsftpd restart, I get the following response: restart: Unknown instance. But if I run the command sudo service vsftpd start, I get the following response: vsftpd start/running, process 3804. To understand what is happening, I run the command ps aux | grep vsftpd, I get root 3805 0.0 0.0 27120 620 ? Ss 14:00 0:00 usr/sbin/vsftpd.
