hello there,
           i'm setting up a linux ftp server to exchange shareware. the ftp server will be wu-ftpd. i'd like to know how can i set it up so it will demand for uploads to make the user able to download. for example if the user wants to download 100 mb he/she must upload 20mb first. any help?

thank you,

There's a section on Upload/Download ratios in the man page for ftpaccess.  wu-ftpd does use /etc/ftpaccess, so you shouldn't have any trouble.
