ProFTPD (Very Secure FTP Daemon) is a highly feature rich FTP server, exposing large amount of configuration options to the user.

Installation

# pacman -S proftpd

To start the daemon:

# systemctl start proftpd.service

If you want it to be started automatically at boot:

# systemctl enable proftpd.service

Configuration

The default configuration file is on (/etc/proftpd.conf)

# This is a basic ProFTPD configuration file (rename it to 
# 'proftpd.conf' for actual use.  It establishes a single server
# and a single anonymous login.  It assumes that you have a user/group
# "nobody" and "ftp" for normal operation and anon.

ServerName			"ProFTPD Default Installation"
ServerType			standalone
DefaultServer			on

# Port 21 is the standard FTP port.
Port				21

# Don't use IPv6 support by default.
UseIPv6				off

# Umask 022 is a good standard umask to prevent new dirs and files
# from being group and world writable.
Umask				022

# To prevent DoS attacks, set the maximum number of child processes
# to 30.  If you need to allow more than 30 concurrent connections
# at once, simply increase this value.  Note that this ONLY works
# in standalone mode, in inetd mode you should use an inetd server
# that allows you to limit maximum number of processes per service
# (such as xinetd).
MaxInstances			30

# Set the user and group under which the server will run.
User				nobody
Group				nobody

# To cause every FTP user to be "jailed" (chrooted) into their home
# directory, uncomment this line.
#DefaultRoot ~

# Normally, we want files to be overwriteable.
AllowOverwrite		on

# Bar use of SITE CHMOD by default
<Limit SITE_CHMOD>
  DenyAll
</Limit>

# A basic anonymous configuration, no upload directories.  If you do not
# want anonymous users, simply delete this entire <Anonymous> section.
<Anonymous ~ftp>
  User				ftp
  Group				ftp

 # We want clients to be able to login with "anonymous" as well as "ftp"
  UserAlias			anonymous ftp

 # Limit the maximum number of anonymous logins
 MaxClients			10

 # We want 'welcome.msg' displayed at login, and '.message' displayed
 # in each newly chdired directory.
 DisplayLogin			welcome.msg
 DisplayChdir			.message

 # Limit WRITE everywhere in the anonymous chroot
 <Limit WRITE>
   DenyAll
 </Limit>
</Anonymous>

Other

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.
