    I have a domain where I can FTP in and do all that is required. There is another user who can FTP in and browse but can't do anything else. We are both using the same credentials to login. Is this a problem with his client?. He uses it to FTP onto other servers.

    Thx,

    John

    Dear tic67,

    You can use AuthAliasOnly directive of proftpd to control how and where real usernames get authenticated, for that you need <VirtualHost>

    <Anonymous ~virtualuser>

    User virtualuser
    Group virtualuser
    UserAlias ftp virtualuser
    UserAlias anonymous virtualuser
    AuthAliasOnly on
    ...

    </Anonymous>

    If the client authenticates as \'virtualuser\' he will be logged as normal user. However if the client uses \'ftp\' or \'anonymous\', the anonymous block is applied.

    For more details regarding this refer:

    Regards,
