ftpusers - list of users that may not log in via the FTP daemon DESCRIPTION
The text file ftpusers contains a list of users that may not log in using the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) server daemon. This file is used not merely for system administration purposes but for improving security within a TCP/IP networked environment. It will typically contain a list of the users that either have no business using ftp or have too many privileges to be allowed to log in through the FTP server daemon. Such users usually include root, daemon, bin, uucp, and news. If your FTP server daemon doesn't use ftpusers then it is suggested that you read its documentation to find out how to block access for certain users. Washington University FTP server Daemon (wuftpd) and Professional FTP Daemon (proftpd) are known to make use of ftpusers. Format The format of ftpusers is very simple. There is one account name (or username) per line. Lines starting with a # are ignored. FILES
/etc/ftpusers SEE ALSO
passwd(5), proftpd(8), wuftpd(8) COLOPHON

ftpdctl [ -hv ] [ -s Unix domain socket ] action action-parameters DESCRIPTION

The control program is used to control the daemon while it is running, supporting actions like restarting or shutting down the daemon, disabling or enabling specific virtual servers, kicking FTP users, etc. The specific actions available via ftpdctl depend on the modules compiled into proftpd. Check the modules documentation for more informa- tion on the specific actions supported by the modules. OPTIONS
-h,--help Display a short usage description, including all available options. -s,--socket Specifies an alternate path to be used for communicating with proftpd rather than the default Unix domain socket. The default controls socket is /var/run/proftpd/proftpd.sock -v,--verbose Display informational messages while communicating with the proftpd daemon. AUTHORS ProFTPD is written and maintained by a number of people, full credits can be found on SEE ALSO
