    It not that odd, I think.

    Check the vsftpd FAQ (2nd question).

    It's how vsftpd works with folders outside chroot users folders. As an example here is how to do it:

    I don't know any other way to do it, sorry.

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    That approach did the trick , thanks!

    But it leads me to another problem: file permissions

    My ftp users are able to upload (write).
    But they should only be able to read these folders:
    /home/ftp/HL
    /home/ftp/#MP3

    With my current configuration they are able to delete and write files in the those folders.

    I don't won't to chmod 755 these folders because I want still to be able to write in these folders as pc user (not ftp).

    How do I solve this problem

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    Or how do I create a user that can only read:
    /home/ftp/HL
    /home/ftp/#mp3

    And another user that can only upload in /home/ftp/upload

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    That should be simple to do. You should enable write permissions to users (all) with:

    Code:
     write_enable=YES
    but disable write permission to anonymous with:

    Code:
     anon_upload_enable=NO
    NOTE: if you DO enable anonymous to write/upload files, you should change the default owner of those files (for security reasons) with:

    Code:
    chown_upload=YES
    chown_username=some_username_with_write_permission_on_the_directory

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    Another note:

    If you want to add certain setting to individual users, create a directory that will have the settings of those users:

    Code:
     sudo mkdir /etc/vsftpd_user_conf
    Edit vsftp configuration file to read that directory:

    Code:
     sudo nano /etc/vsftpd.conf
    and set the user_config_dir variable (non-existent in the default configuration file) to read that directory:

    Code:
     user_config_dir=/etc/vsftpd_user_conf
    Inside the /etc/vsftpd_user_conf directory, create a file named with the username of the "exception" user and set the variables/options that you want him/them to have as exceptions to the default configuration. For various users, various files, each one with different settings if you want.

    Don't forget to restart vsftp each time you change its configuration

    Code:
     sudo /etc/init.d/vsftpd restart

    Does anyone know a easy way to keep track of your vsftpd, so that I know when people have uploaded files (or connected). Ideally, I'd just like a terminal window showing ftp activity.

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    Hi moojs,

    you can track vsftpd activity on the usual place, in the /var/log/ directory in the vsftpd.log file.

    Re: Howto: Easy FTP with vsftpd

    I have a problem too, I have like three days trying to set up vsftpd with no little or no success at all, Im trying to do the following:

    user anonymous: read several folders, but dont write anything, I will mount the folders like you explained earlier.
    my local user: full access to /home/user name

    I reached this configuration so far:
    listen=YES
    anonymous_enable=YES
    local_enable=YES
    write_enable=YES
    anon_upload_enable=NO
    dirmessage_enable=YES
    xferlog_enable=YES
    connect_from_port_20=YES
    chown_uploads=YES
    chown_username=mike
    idle_session_timeout=300
    data_connection_timeout=120
    ftpd_banner=Welcome to Mike's FTP server
    chroot_local_user=YES
    chroot_list_enable=NO
    secure_chroot_dir=/var/run/vsftpd
    pam_service_name=vsftpd
    rsa_cert_file=/etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem
    rsa_private_key_file=/etc/ssl/private/ssl-cert-snakeoil.key
    local_root=/home/mike
    force_dot_files=YES
    hide_ids=YES
    max_per_ip=1
    max_clients=6
    pasv_min_port=1025
    pasv_max_port=1125

    with this I can connect locally, (ftp localhost) and it works, but right now Im not in my home and I cant access the server,it says connection refused, the connection is working because I can see my page and access to my box via ssh and scp, any advice? Im I doing something wrong?

    Thnx in advance folks

    epimeteo

    I followed your howto ftp with vsftpd. When i use filezilla i can log in until i get this
    Response: 425 security: Bad IP Connecting
    Error: Failed to retrieve directory listings

    Assuming a followed your directions, why would I get this error?

    Thanks
