 RE: FTP with no shell access - Discovered the easy
Author: el_kab0ng

Two things I have learned tonite...

1. Copy the /sbin/no-login to something restrictive to ftp...as in /sbin/ftp-nologin and place that in /etc/shells.
2. Create /etc/ftpchroot with nothing in there but the users you want restricted to the directory thats assigned in /etc/passwd.

When this is done, you will have users with no shell, yet RESTRICTED ftp access without worrying about bounces.

This all applies to Free BSD 4.0 with the /bin/ls already compiled into the ftpd...

When all else fails, go here...scratch the porn site posted earlier...that url sucked...
