    proftpd

    I don't believe my proftpd server is setup to automatically allow any server user to connect to it. Where might i go about changing this setting?

    Thank you

    Re:proftpd

    check your proftpd.conf file, it should be set in there.

    www.proftpd.org/docs/faq/linked/faq-ch4.html++%27nogroup%27++proftpd&hl=en]The default ProFTPD configuration file uses the user "nouser" and the group "nogroup", some systems / distributions do not have the group "nogroup" defined. The solution is to either add the group "nogroup" to /etc/groups or to change the "nogroup" entry in the proftpd.conf to a group which does exist.[/url]
