FTP account

I have just set up an FTP aacount, it works fine. However, I would like this account to log directly into /pub (/usr/ftp/pub) directory.
At the time FTP user logs he gets in / (/usr/ftp) but I dont want it.
I tried to change his home directory in /etc/passwd to /usr/ftp/pub but it did not worked well.
In /etc/passwd I have this:
ftp:*:15:15:Anonymous ftp:/usr/ftp/:

Example:
ftp 127.0.0.1
Name (127.0.0.1:root): anonymous
[...}
ftp>ls
bin
dev
etc
lib
pub

I want to get directly into pub directory!.


Thanks.

You were on the right track, I think.  It SHOULD work fine if you change
ftp:*:15:15:Anonymous ftp:/usr/ftp/:
to
ftp:*:15:15:Anonymous ftp:/usr/ftp/pub/:
Be sure you don't accidently delete any of the colons.

If this is what you have already done, please describe more what you mean by "I tried to change his home directory in /etc/passwd to /usr/ftp/pub but it did not worked well"

use wu.ftpd, then change ftp user's home dir in passwd to:

ftp:*:15:15:Anonymous ftp:/usr/ftp/./pub/:/bin/false

Hello.
Non of your answers worked.

Thanks again.

Did you use wu.ftpd (see /etc/initd.conf) ?

Hello again,
Do you mean /etc/inetd.conf?.
Yes, I lookup wu.ftpd and there is not. I just found this:
---
ftp     stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/etc/ftpd   ftpd -l
---

I am using Irix 6.3.

Thanks again.

AFAIK SGI's ftpd can't do it this way. You may change to a users
directory but it must contain bin/, etc/, lib/, usr/, exactly what you have now.
I recommend installing wu.ftpd .
