Custom ftp settings

On the standard ftp supplied with Solaris and HP-UX is there anyone that has been able to disable users from certain settings.
i.e the put function.

Our customer ftp's onto the unix host and gets files for extraction into a pc based spreadsheet. I want to stop them from being able to delete files via ftp on the host as well as some other functions I believe they don't need.

Many thanks for any assistance!

Deleting a file requires write permission on the directory that contains it. Change permissions on the directory and they delete files. Since all they need to do is get some files, they should not have write permission on anything.

If a Unix shell command line ends with the hashtag #, then the job runs in the background, and the shell does not wait for the job to terminate before printing the prompt and waiting for the next command line.
True or False?
