NAME
  ftpusers - The ftpd security file

SYNOPSIS

  /etc/ftpusers

DESCRIPTION

  The ftpd security file rejects remote	logins to local	user accounts speci-
  fied in /etc/ftpusers.  Restricted accounts appear one to a line; white
  space	is prohibited.	Account	names must match exactly the user account
  name in the /etc/passwd file.	 If the	file does not exist, ftpd does not do
  security checks.

EXAMPLES

  The following	are sample entries in an /etc/ftpusers file:

       root
       guest
       ftp
       user1
       UUCP

	    Contains user information not to be	used by	the remote File
	    Transfer Protocol users.
