NAME
     ftpgroups - FTP Server enhanced group access file

SYNOPSIS
     /etc/ftpd/ftpgroups

DESCRIPTION
     The ftpgroups file contains the enhanced group access infor-
     mation.

     After login, if the ftpacccess(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  punctuation
           characters.

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

     real_group_name
           The name of a valid group returned by getgrnam(3C).

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