pam_ftp: PAM module for anonymous access module
pam_ftp - PAM module for anonymous access module
- pam_ftp.so [debug] [ignore] [users=XXX,YYY,...]
This module intercepts the user's name and password. If the name is ftp or anonymous, the user's password is broken up at the @ delimiter into a PAM_RUSER and a PAM_RHOST part; these pam-items being set accordingly. The username (PAM_USER) is set to ftp. In this case the module succeeds. Alternatively, the module sets the PAM_AUTHTOK item with the entered password and fails.
- Print debug information.
- Pay no attention to the email address of the user (if supplied).
- Instead of ftp or anonymous, provide anonymous login to the comma separated list of users: XXX,YYY,.... Should the applicant enter one of these usernames the returned username is set to the first in the list: XXX.
MODULE TYPES PROVIDED
- The authentication was successful.
- User not known.
Add the following line to /etc/pam.d/ftpd to handle ftp style anonymous login:
# # ftpd; add ftp-specifics. These lines enable anonymous ftp over # standard UN*X access (the listfile entry blocks access to # users listed in /etc/ftpusers) # auth sufficient pam_ftp.so auth required pam_unix.so use_first_pass auth required pam_listfile.so \ onerr=succeed item=user sense=deny file=/etc/ftpusers
