ftpgroups(4)				   File Formats 			     ftpgroups(4)

NAME
       ftpgroups - FTP Server enhanced group access file

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/ftpd/ftpgroups

DESCRIPTION
       The ftpgroups file contains the enhanced group access information.

       After  login,  if  the  ftpaccess(4)  file includes private yes, the user may use the SITE
       GROUP and SITE GPASS commands to specify an enhanced access group and a password for  that
       group.  If the access group name and password are valid, the FTP Server executes setuid(2)
       to make the user a member of the real group listed in the ftpgroups file.

       The format for the ftpgroups file is:

	 accessgroup:encrypted_password:real_group_name

       The fields are defined as follows:

       accessgroup	     An arbitrary string of alphanumeric and punctuation characters.

       encrypted_password    The group password encrypted exactly like in /etc/shadow.

       real_group_name	     The name of a valid group returned by getgrnam(3C).

       The privatepw utility is an administrative tool to add, delete and  list  enhanced  access
       group information in the ftpgroups file. See privatepw(1M). Lines that begin with a # sign
       are treated as comment lines and are ignored.
