RE: FTP issue on 6.1



Thanks a bunch - I'll see if that doesn't resolve the problem.

Ah, when ftpd logs in a guest account, it does a chroot to the
"guest ftp" directory.  Once that is done, NOTHING outside of
that directory is visible at all.  This means that even the ls
command itself, and all the libs needed for it or any other
command must also be included within this root.

If you check this out I'm sure you'll find a /lib, /bin, and
/etc in the guest ftp directory.  Make a symlink to ls in the
the bin directory and call it "dir".

On a side note, the user names and group names in the ls listing
will only be visible as names (rather than the IDs) if those
users and groups are in the local "/etc/passwd" and "/etc/group"
(the ftp guest directory's copy--not the real /etc!)
