    UserAlias thomas userftp
    but I still can't log in as a different user. All the users have user accounts on the server and have been added to the userftp group.

    Yep because you need to set an alias name for these new users withe the UserAlias command.

    Ex:
    UserAlias aliasname2 systemuser2

    This is more likely a network/firewall config issue on either your FTP server or your windows computer (maybe both).

    To ease the debug i strongly advice you to put your FTP server on port 21 as it is sometimes harder to use another port for FTP on the network/firewall config side.

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

    Hello,

    I finally managed to get my local ftp server up and running, but there's is something I like to know.. I really did my best to locate the documentation somewhere but failed..

    Is there any documentation on the parameters used within the <limit> section in the proftpd.conf?
    [edit: sorry, this was really a noob question afterall, by monitoring the output screen in gftp, it came to mind that these are the commands given for certain actions... ]

    Lot's of thanx in advance

    And another minor, maybe even irrelevant question.. Does the pass phrase for the ssl certificate need to be a rather long one, or can it be short like a 'normal' pass?

    For documentation you should find all you need on the proftpd website there :
    http://www.proftpd.org/localsite/Use...userguide.html

    For the password, i guess it's always better to have at least 8 characters but it's just a feeling not something i can demonstrate.

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

    Thanks very much for your guide.

    I have a few questions.

    When I log into the userftp account from filezilla I am still able to open my main account's home folder. Is it possible to allow access to only two folders - download and upload? I don't want my friend's being able to see what is in my home folder.

    How would I upload files to the download directory remotely? Would I be able to do this via ssh?

    So I guess in short:

    1. Limit userftp only to download and upload
    2. Find a way to upload files to the 'download' folder remotely (e.g. ssh).

    Also, if I create any more folders (e.g. in the download or upload folder) will I need to change my log or chmod then in any way?

    Thanks
