I have tried a search on this question but I feel I am confsing myself more. I have a little experience in Linux. I run slackware 10.0 and use webmin to help me with most of the setup.
I have been able to get proftp to run an allow root to login [which I will disable] but I cannot seem to setup a non-anonymous user.
What is the best method for that? I added the user to the system but I cannot seem to figure out how to get proftpd to authenticate them.
I looks in the etc/passwd file and there are entires for these other users.
Any help or guidance would be appreciated.
