    chetan55:
    Simply create the user on your system.

    Option 1:
    USing the GUI: System -> user and group -> Create new user.
    Make sure the 'bin' is set to false.
    Make also sure they have an alias set.

    Option 2:
    From the command line use: (if you use this method, make sure you have 'authaliasonly off' inside your proftpd.conf
    create user -> 'sudo useradd UserNameHere -d UserHomeFolder -s /bin/false'
    set password -> 'sudo passwd UserNameHere'

    Option 3: (my way)
    Edit the file /etc/adduser.conf
    Set the variable you want
    use the command 'sudo adduser UserNameHere
    fill the requested field and voila

    Keep in mind:
    If you want each user to be 'locked' inside their home folde, simply replace all you 'defaultroot' lines posted above by 'defaultroot ~'

    I suggest you revise Post #1 and check out post #992

    Good luck

    Re: HOWTO : Create a FTP server with user access (proftpd)

    You should try to modify the following lines:
    Code:
    # Set the user and group that the server normally runs at.
    User                  nobody
    Group                 nogroup
    I know this but i never really found a way to make them to have your normal user rights, i've not searched hard though. Anyway i would start trying to modify the above lines to match your user.

    Re: HOWTO : Create a FTP server with user access (proftpd)

    hi all, i went the easy way and installed proftpd using gproftpd. everything was a piece of cake and all is set up correctly.

    however, when i connect to the ftp server, listing directory contents takes up to 2 minutes (even when the directory is empty) and many times it times out altogether. once i'm in the dir, copying files to/from it is very fast. it's literally only retrieving the list of files that is timing out on me.

    any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Reomove both DefaulRoot command and replace them by :
    Code:
    DefaultRoot /game
    This should lock your FTP users users in /game.
