To log in to the FTP server, users must be members of a class when the ftpaccess file is used. To add the class directive to the ftpaccess file, you specify the class name, typelist of users who are permitted access from a particular host.
Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.
Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.
Add entries for anonymous, guest, and real users in the ftpaccess file.
class class typelist addrglob[addrglob...]
Keyword that is used to define FTP users.
A name that is defined by the class keyword. Each login is compared against a list of defined classes. The logged in user is considered a member of the first class matched.
A comma-separated list of the keywords that match the three types of users: anonymous, guest, and real.
A globbed domain name or a globbed numeric address. The addrglob can also be the name of a file, starting with a slash (`/`), which contains additional address globs: address:netmask or address/cidr.
Here are some examples of globbed addresses:
Numeric IPv4 address: 10.1.2.3
Globbed domain name *.provider.com
Globbed numeric IPv4 address 10.1.2.*
Numeric IPv4 address:netmask 10.1.2.0:255.255.255.0
Numeric IPv4 address/CIDR 10.1.2.0/24
Numeric IPv6 address: 2000::56:789:21ff:fe8f:ba98
Numeric IPv6 address/CIDR: 2000::56:789:21ff:fe8f:ba98/120
class local real,guest,anonymous *.provider.com class remote real,guest,anonymous *
The previous example defines the local class as any user of the type real, guest, or anonymous who logs in from *.provider.com. The last line defines remote as any user who logs in from anywhere other than *.provider.com.
