pam_ftp - PAM module for anonymous access module
[debug] [ignore] [users= XXX,YYY,...]
pam_ftp is a PAM module which provides a pluggable anonymous ftp mode of access.
This module intercepts the user's name and password. If the name is ftp
, the user's password is broken up at the @
delimiter into a PAM_RUSER
and a PAM_RHOST
part; these pam-items
being set accordingly. The username ( PAM_USER
) is set to ftp
In this case the module succeeds. Alternatively, the module sets the
item with the entered password and fails.
This module is not safe and easily spoofable.
Print debug information.
Pay no attention to the email address of the
user (if supplied).
Instead of ftp or anonymous,
provide anonymous login to the comma separated list of users:
XXX,YYY,.... Should the applicant enter one of these usernames
the returned username is set to the first in the list: XXX.
Only the auth
module type is provided.
The authentication was successful.
User not known.
Add the following line to /etc/pam.d/ftpd to handle ftp style anonymous login:
# ftpd; add ftp-specifics. These lines enable anonymous ftp over
# standard UN*X access (the listfile entry blocks access to
# users listed in /etc/ftpusers)
