Description Henri J. Schlereth 1999-09-02 17:56:22 UTC
proftpd-1.2.0pre3-6.i386.rpm which is a fix to a security
problem is compiled with pam authentication. If you dont
have a previous install of wu-ftpd ("drop-in" replacement)
then the rpm does not include the pam module ftp in
pam.d.

The missing module prevents authenticated users from logging
in but not anonymous users (unnnnnhhh?).

Temporary solution: copy pam module ftp into pam.d
(module from wu-ftpd works fine) and regular users can
again login.

Cannot verify if this problem exits in other hardware
systems.

Comment 1 Tim Powers 1999-09-02 18:07:59 UTC
This is a known problem. You can get the proftpd which fixes this from
ftp://rawhide.redhat.com/rawhide/powertools . The package there has an
issue too, the /etc/proftpd.conf is an html file, and it souldn't be.
The update for this should make it to rawhide sometime tonight
(whenever the updates occur).

What you can do is copy one of the configuration files located in
/usr/doc/proftpd-1.2.0pre4/sample-configurations to /etc/proftpd.conf,
that should solve the problem with the proftpd-1.2.0pre4-1 package.

Hope this helps.

Tim
