 "FTP Only"
Author: Frank Munch 
Date:   22-11-01 20:55


Thanks for a very helpful page - I had spent quite some time trying to figure out how one made would make "FTP Only" account.

After reading I got the idea to take a "nologin"-shell and copy it to a new shell "nologin_ftponly" and then include this name in /etc/shells - so one has a neat shell with the right name for FTP Only users.

That renaming is a very good tip. And one I've seen elsewhere.

IDEA: instead of copying it, try a symlink.
