NAMEeft_wuauth - authentication for eftp4linux Eurofile server based on wuftpd.
DESCRIPTIONIf the eftp4linux Eurofile server eftd is compiled with the CONFIG_EFTD_WUAUTH configuration option, it uses user authentication code derived from wuftpd, the Washington University ftp daemon. In that case eftd authenticates users according to four rules. 1) The user name must be in the password data base, /etc/passwd, or whatever is appropriate for the operating system, and the password must not be null. In this case a password must be provided by the client before any file operations may be performed. 2) The user name must not appear in the file /etc/isdn/eftusers. 3) The user must have a standard shell returned by getusershell(3). If login failed for certain users, maybe that's because their login shell is not listed in /etc/shells. 4) If the user name is ''anonymous'' or ''ftp'', an anonymous ftp account must be present in the password file (user ''ftp''). In this case the user is allowed to log in by specifying any password (by convention this is given as the client host's name). In the last case, eftd takes special measures to restrict the client's access privileges. The server performs a chroot(2) command to the home directory of the ''ftp'' user. In order that system security is not breached, it is recommended that the ''ftp'' subtree be constructed with care; the following rules are recommended. ~ftp) Make the home directory owned by super-user and unwritable by anyone. ~ftp/bin) Make this directory owned by the super-user and unwritable by anyone. This contains auxilary programs that might be forked by eftd(8) or ftpd(8). These programs should have mode 111. eftd(8) currently does not need any auxilary programs. Thus, you only need to put files here if you also want to provide anonymous ftp service. ~ftp/etc) Make this directory owned by the super-user and unwritable by anyone. The files passwd(5) and group(5) must be present for eftd to be able to produce owner names rather than numbers in file headers and extended format directory (T-DIR primitive) listings. Depending on the operating system, there may be other required files. Check your manual page for the getpwent(3) library routine. The password field in passwd is not used, and should not contain real encrypted passwords. These files should be mode 444 and owned by the super-user. Don't use the system's /etc/passwd file as the password file or the system's /etc/group file as the group file in the ~ftp/etc directory. ~ftp/pub) Create a subdirectory in ~ftp/pub with the appropriate mode (777 or 733) if you want to allow normal users to upload files. The Eurofile file server also allows for finer grained access control by means of the files /etc/isdn/eftaccess and /etc/isdn/efthosts.

BUGSThe anonymous account is inherently dangerous and should be avoided when possible. The eftaccess amd efthosts files are currently not yet working as documented. EFT_WUAUTH(5)
