Proftpd

From ArchWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

proFtpd (Pro FTP daemon) is a highly feature rich FTP server, exposing large amount of configuration options to the user.

Installation

proftpdAUR is available in the AUR. Enable and start proftpd.service.

Configuration

The configuration file is available at /etc/proftp.conf. The project's website has an extensive documentation.

Anonymous access

To head off a common problem, for anonymous access to work with /bin/false as the shell for the ftp user (the default configuration), you must add the line RequireValidShell off to /etc/proftpd.conf. Otherwise anonymous logins will receive a 530 error.
