PAM stting for vsftpd

Reported by: Pierre Labastie Owned by: DJ Lucas
Priority: normal Milestone: 7.10
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


From hykwok1@… on -dev:

If PAM is enabled for vsftpd, according to the file "INSTALL", we have to copy the file RedHat/vsftpd.pam to /etc/pam.d/ as follows:

cp RedHat/vsftpd.pam /etc/pam.d/ftp

Otherwise, we cannot use the existing accounts to login the FTP server.

In the thread on blfs-dev, I mentioned that the shipped PAM config file is not appropriate for BLFS. I should have expanded that a bit. The file as shipped should work if you have not extended your system PAM configuration, for instance adding additional authentication sources (possibly others). The proper fix is to create a new vsftpd file that includes the auth check on /etc/ftpusers, and system-{auth,account,session} (or individual entries if system-{account,session} are not appropriate, auth should be).

You know more about this than I do. I generally do not use pam, or only use the default config files. Can you go ahead and fix this up properly?

Sure will. I've been meaning to go over the entire PAM config for about a year now. This is as good a place as any to start. Probably be a day or two, but will get it this weekend.
