anon ftp remains active, or appears to be after commenting out
the ftp entry in /etc/passwd

this what i have::

#ftp:x:14:50:FTP User: /home/ftp:

did i miss something?

heres what I used to disable anon-ftp.

edit /etc/proftpd.conf

this is my&Anonymous&&/Anonymous&:

&Anonymous ~ftp&
UseFtpUsers on
RequireValidShell off

User ftp
Group ftp
# We want clients to be able to login with &anonymous& as well as &ftp&
#UserAlias anonymous ftp

&Limit LOGIN&
DenyAll
&/Limit&
# Limit the maximum number of anonymous logins
MaxClients 10

# We want 'welcome.msg' displayed at login, and '.message' displayed
# in each newly chdired directory.
DisplayLogin welcome.msg
DisplayFirstChdir .message

# Limit WRITE everywhere in the anonymous chroot
&Limit WRITE&
DenyAll
&/Limit&

&/Anonymous&

hmm.. I've edited my proftp.conf like shown above but I can't still access as anonymous.

I see
bin
etc
lib
...
but I'd like that you can't see anything as anonymous.. is that possible?

thx,

dave.

Did you remember to restart proftpd?

/etc/rc.d/intit.d/proftpd stop

then

/etc/rc.d/init.d/proftpd start

Did you get this resolved? I have the same freakin problem. I've tried everything you've tried and can still access the same folders you see.

The good thing is that some accounts were successfully disabled but there are still several that I can login via ANON FTP.

Let me know if you or someone found a fix.

Thanx...

In WHM,

If it show's disabled, enable it. Wait for ftp to restart, then disable it again.

I had the same - showed disabled but was enabled. This fixed it for me. (pureftp)
