    Tumbleweed FTP server


    Messed up application, but I may have a work around is there any way I can...

    I made a directory called restrict

    In linux Can you make the ‘restrict’ directory read-only for the group Test, but full for everyone else?

    Code:
    chown TestUser:Test /path/tp/Resctict
    chmod a+r /path/tp/Resctict
    chmod a-wx /path/tp/Resctict
    chmod g+rwx /path/tp/Resctict
    type man chmod or man chown to understand linux file permissions better.

    See I tried that, and it does not work...

    I guess I should have mentioned that in my prevous post.

    Also in the application I can not see any users I have created in Linux.

    Not my choice of application I just inherited it.

    Sorry, because tumbleweed is proprietary, I can't help you much more, your best bet is the documentation you have, being as your the only one who can read it....

    Thats the sad part as their documentation just is so messed up itself.

    Let me rephrase my questions, can anyone recommend a better ftp server application that runs under linux and can actually use the linux security model?

    in that case vsftp(d) is going to be one of your best bets, authentication and and permissions are all based on the linux defaults. Built from the ground up with security in mind (hence the name Very Secure File Transfer Protocol Daemon)

    Now the big question if I am indeed stuck with this worthless application is there anyway in Linux that I can have 2 Groups with different rights and anyone not in those groups gets none.

    Tumbleweed must have been made from Microsoft

    The basic idea driving this is ownership, try reading this to see if it will help explain
