ftpgroups(4)                     File Formats                     ftpgroups(4)



NAME
       ftpgroups - FTP Server enhanced group access file

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/ftpd/ftpgroups

DESCRIPTION
       The ftpgroups file contains the enhanced group access information.

       After  login,  if  the ftpaccess(4) file includes private yes, the user
       may use the SITE GROUP and SITE GPASS commands to specify  an  enhanced
       access  group  and  a password for that group. If the access group name
       and password are valid, the  the FTP Server executes setegid(2) to make
       the user a member of the real group listed in the ftpgroups file.

       The format for the ftpgroups file is:

       accessgroup:encrypted_password:real_group_name


       The fields are defined as follows:

       accessgroup             An arbitrary string of alphanumeric and punctu-
                               ation characters.



       encrypted_password      The group password encrypted  exactly  like  in
                               /etc/shadow.



       real_group_name         The  name  of  a valid group returned by getgr-
                               nam(3C).



       The privatepw utility is an administrative tool to add, delete and list
       enhanced  access  group  information  in  the  ftpgroups file. See pri-
       vatepw(1M). Lines that begin with a # sign are treated as comment lines
       and are ignored.
