 NAME
      ftpusers - security file for ftpd(1M)

 DESCRIPTION
      ftpd rejects remote logins to local user accounts that are named in
      /etc/ftpd/ftpusers.  Each restricted account name must appear alone on
      a line in the file.  The line cannot contain any white space.  User
      accounts that specify a restricted login shell in /etc/passwd should
      be listed in /etc/ftpd/ftpusers because ftpd accesses local accounts
      without using their login shells.	 UUCP accounts should be listed in
      /etc/ftpd/ftpusers.  If /etc/ftpd/ftpusers does not exist, ftpd skips
      the security check.

 EXAMPLES
      Given an /etc/ftpd/ftpusers file containing the following:

	   Only lines that exactly match user account names are
	   significant.	 Blank lines are harmless because they
	   do not match any account names.  However you must be
	   careful.

	   uucp
	   guest

      ftpd would reject login attempts using the local accounts careful.,
      uucp, or guest.
