I want to setup chroot FTP in AIX 5.3 server. The created user "test"
should access to this FTP server and should browse his home directory
and not the other directories via the FTP client tool.
I created this file /etc/ftpaccess.ctl and I added this lines:
When I try to connect with this account "test" from the AIX server,
I'm able to list the content of the chrooted directory.
But when I try to connect to this FTP server via a GUI FTP client from
my XP station, I cannot list the directory content, but I'm able to
put some files to this directory by uploading some files from my XP
station to this chrooted FTP.
How can I be able to list the chrooted file from a GUI FTP client
Thanks a lot.

Re: Chroot FTP2012-10-04T04:21:20Z in response to SystemAdminTaken from publib link of AIX :
The useronly: and grouponly: lines define anonymous users similar to the user anonymous in that they are not password protected. The puseronly: and pgrouponly: lines define anonymous users that are password protected.
For puseronly: and pgrouponly: users, passwords must be created and login must be disabled.
Can you let me know the steps you used to create 'ftpuser'
Re: Chroot FTP2012-10-04T12:51:37Z in response to SystemAdmini have your original problem
did you solved your original problem without using proftpd
I have an interesting issue - I am in the process of setting up a chroot jail for ftp users, so they can only access their home directory. It works fine when connecting via command line ftp, but when I connect to the AIX host via a Filezilla client, I can connect OK but the files in the directory are not visible. I can upload files to the directory without any problem, but you can't see...
