ProcedureHow to Set Up Real FTP Users

To enable access for real users to the FTP server, follow these instructions:

  1. Verify that the user has an account that is set up with a user name and password that can be used to establish a terminal session.

    For more information, see Chapter 4, Managing User Accounts and Groups (Overview), in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.

  2. Confirm that the real user is a member of a class in the ftpaccess file.

    For information on the user classes that are defined in the ftpaccess file, see How to Define FTP Server Classes.

  3. Verify that the user's login shell is listed in the /etc/shells file.
