DESCRIPTION
       Pure-FTPd is a small, simple server for the old and hairy File Transfer
       Protocol, designed to use less resources than older servers, be smaller
       and very secure, and to never execute any external program.

       It  support most-used features and commands of FTP (including many mod-
       ern extensions), and leaves out everything which is  deprecated,  mean-
       ingless, insecure, or correlates with trouble.

       IPv6 is fully supported.


OPTIONS
       -0     When  a file is uploaded and there is already a previous version
              of the file with the same name, the old file  will  neither  get
              removed  nor  truncated.   Upload will take place in a temporary
              file and once the upload is complete, the switch to the new ver-
              sion  will  be  atomic.  This option should not be used together
              with virtual quotas.

       -1     Add the PID to the syslog output. Ignored if -f none is set.

       -4     Listen only to IPv4 connections.

       -6     Listen only to IPv6 connections.

       -a gid Regular users will be chrooted to their home directories, unless
              they  belong  to  the  specified  gid.  Note that root is always
              trusted, and that chroot() occurs only for anonymous ftp without
              this option.

       -A     Chroot() everyone, but root.

       -b     Be broken. Turns on some compatibility hacks for shoddy clients,
              and for broken Netfilter gateways.

       -B     Start the standalone server in background (daemonize).

       -c clients
              Allow a maximum of clients to be connected.  clients must be  at
              least 1, and if you combine it with -p it will be forced down to
              half the number of ports specified by -p.  If more than  clients
              are  connected,  new  clients are rejected at once, even clients
              wishing to upload, or to log in as normal users.  Therefore,  it
              is  advisable  to  use  -m  as  primary overload protection. The
              default value is 50.

       -C max connection per ip
              Limit the number of simultanous connections coming from the same
              IP  address.  This  is yet another very effective way to prevent
              stupid denial of services and bandwidth starvation by  a  single
              user.   It  works only when the server is launched in standalone
              mode (if you use a super-server, it is supposed to do that).  If
              the  server  is  launched  with  -C 2 , it doesn't mean that the
              total number of connection  is  limited  to  2.   But  the  same
              client,  coming from the same machine (or at least the same IP),
              can't have more than two simultaneous connections. This features
              needs some memory to track IP addresses, but it's recommended to
              use it.

       -d     turns on debug logging. Every command is logged, except that the
              argument  to PASS is changed to "<password>". If you repeat -d ,
              responses too are logged.

       -e     Only allow anonymous users to log in.

       -E     Only allow authenticated login. Anonymous users are prohibited.

       -f facility
              makes ftpd use facility for all  syslog(3)  messages.   facility
              defaults  to  ftp.   The  facility  names are normally listed in
              /usr/include/sys/syslog.h.  Note that if -f  is  not  the  first
              option  on  the command line, a couple of messages may be logged
              to local2 before the -f option is parsed.  Use -f none  to  dis-
              able logging.

       -F fortunes file
              Display  a funny random message in the initial login banner. The
              random cookies are extracted from a text file, in  the  standard
              fortune format. If you installed the fortune package, you should
              have a directory (usually /usr/share/fortune ) with binary files
              ( xxxx.dat ) and text files (without the .dat extension).

       -g pidfile
              In  standalone  mode,  write  the pid to that file in instead of
              /var/run/pure-ftpd.pid .

       -G     When this option is enabled, people can no more change the  name
              of already uploaded files, even if they own those files or their
              directory.

       -H     Don't resolve host names ("192.0.34.166" will be logged  instead
              of "www.example.com"). It can significantly speed up connections
              and reduce bandwidth usage on busy servers. Use it especially on
              public FTP sites.

       -i     Disallow  upload for anonymous users, whatever directory permis-
              sions are. This option is especially useful for virtual hosting,
              to avoid your users create warez sites in their account.

       -I timeout
              Change  the  maximum  idle  time. The timeout is in minutes, and
              defaults to 15.

       -j     If the home directory of an user  doesn't  exist,  automatically
              create it. The newly created home directory belongs to the user,
              and permissions are set according to the current directory mask.
              To avoid local attacks, the parent directory should never belong
              to an untrusted user.

       -k percentage
              Disallow upload if the partition is more than  percentage  full.
              Example:  -k 95 will ensure that your disk will never get filled
              more than 95% by FTP users.

       -K     Allow users to resume and upload files, but NOT to delete  them.
              Directories can be removed, but only if they are empty.

       -l authentication:file
              Enable  a  new authentication method. It can be one of : -l unix
              For standard  (/etc/passwd)  authentication.   -l  pam  For  PAM
              authentication.   -l ldap:LDAP config file For LDAP directories.
              -l mysql:MySQL config file For MySQL databases.  -l  pgsql:Post-
              gres config file For Postgres databases.  -l puredb:PureDB data-
              base file For PureDB databases.  -l extauth:path  to  pure-authd
              socket For external authentication handlers.
              Different  authentication  methods  can  be  mixed together. For
              instance  if  you  run  the  server  with  -lpuredb:/etc/pwd.pdb
              -lmysql:/etc/my.cf  -lunix  Accounts will first be authenticated
              from a PureDB database. If it fails,  a  MySQL  server  will  be
              asked.  If the account is still not found is the database, stan-
              dard unix accounts will be scanned. Authentication  methods  are
              tried in the order you give the -l options.
              See  the  README.LDAP  and README.MySQL files for info about the
              built-in LDAP and SQL directory support.

       -L max files:max depth
              Avoid denial-of-service attacks by limiting the number  of  dis-
              played  files  in  a  'ls'  and the maximum depth of a recursive
              'ls'. Defaults are 2000:5 (2000 files  displayed  for  a  single
              'ls' and walk through 5 subdirectories max).

       -m load
              Do  not  allow  anonymous users to download files if the load is
              above load when the user connects. Uploads and file listings are
              still  allowed,  as are downloads by real users. The user is not
              told about this until he/she tries to download a file.

       -M     Allow anonymous users to create directories.

       -n maxfiles:maxsize
              Enable virtual quotas When virtual quotas are enabled, .ftpquota
              files  are  created,  and  the  number  of  files for an user is
              restricted to 'maxfiles'. The max total size of his directory is
              also  restricted  to 'maxsize' Megabytes. Members of the trusted
              group aren't subject to quotas.

       -N     NAT mode. Force active mode. If your FTP server is behind a  NAT
              box that doesn't support applicative FTP proxying, or if you use
              port redirection without a  transparent  FTP  proxy,  use  this.
              Well...  the  previous  sentence isn't very clear. Okay: if your
              network looks like this:
              FTP--NAT.gateway/router--Internet
              and if you want people coming from the internet to  have  access
              to  your  FTP  server,  please try without this option first. If
              Netscape clients can connect without any problem, your NAT gate-
              way  rulez. If Netscape doesn't display directory listings, your
              NAT gateway sucks. Use -N as a workaround.

       -o     Enable pure-uploadscript.

       -O format:log file
              Record all file transfers into a specific log file, in an alter-
              native  format.  Currently,  three  formats are supported : CLF,
              Stats, W3C and xferlog.
              If you add
              -O clf:/var/log/pureftpd.log
              to your  starting  options,  Pure-FTPd  will  log  transfers  in
              /var/log/pureftpd.log  in  a  format  similar  to the Apache web
              server in default configuration.
              If you add
              -O stats:/var/log/pureftpd.log
              to your starting options, Pure-FTPd  will  create  accurate  log
              files designed for traffic analys software like ftpStats.
              If you add
              -O w3c:/var/log/pureftpd.log
              to  your  starting options, Pure-FTPd will create W3C-conformant
              log files.
              For  security  purposes,  the  path  must   be   absolute   (eg.
              /var/log/pureftpd.log, not  ../log/pureftpd.log).

       -p first:last
              Use  only  ports  in  the range first to last inclusive for pas-
              sive-mode downloads. This means that clients  will  not  try  to
              open  connections  to  TCP ports outside the range first - last,
              which makes pure-ftpd more compatible with packet filters.  Note
              that the maximum number of clients (specified with -c) is forced
              down to (last + 1 - first)/2 if it is greater,  as  the  default
              is. (The syntax for the port range is, conveniently, the same as
              that of iptables).

       -P ip address or host name
              Force the specified IP address in reply to a PASV/EPSV/SPSV com-
              mand.  If  the  server  is  behind a masquerading (NAT) box that
              doesn't properly handle stateful FTP masquerading,  put  the  ip
              address  of that box here. If you have a dynamic IP address, you
              can use a symbolic host name (probably the one of your gateway),
              that will be resolved every time a new client will connect.

       -q upload:download
              Enable  an upload/download ratio for anonymous users (ex: -q 1:5
              means that 1 Mb of goodies have to be uploaded to leech 5 Mb).

       -Q upload:download
              Enable ratios for anonymous and non-anonymous users. If  the  -a
              option is also used, users from the trusted group have no ratio.

       -r     Never  overwrite  existing  files.  Uploading a file whoose name
              already exists cause  an  automatic  rename.  Files  are  called
              xyz.1, xyz.2, xyz.3, etc.

       -R     Disallow users (even non-anonymous ones) usage of the CHMOD com-
              mand. On hosting services, it may  prevent  newbies  from  doing
              mistakes,  like setting bad permissions on their home directory.
              Only root can use CHMOD when this switch is enabled.

       -s     Don't allow anonymous users to retrieve  files  owned  by  "ftp"
              (generally, files uploaded by other anonymous users).

       -S [{ip address|hostname}] [,{port|service name}]
              This  option  is only effective when the server is launched as a
              standalone server.  Connections are accepted on the specified IP
              and  port. IPv4 and IPv6 are supported. Numeric and fully-quali-
              fied host names are accepted. A service name (see /etc/services)
              can be used instead of a numeric port number.

       -t bandwidth
              or  -t upload bandwidth:download bandwidth Enable process prior-
              ity lowering and bandwidth throttling for anonymous users. Delay
              should be in kilobytes/seconds.

       -T bandwidth
              or  -T upload bandwidth:download bandwidth Enable process prior-
              ity  lowering  and  bandwidth  throttling   for   *ALL*   users.
              Pure-FTPd  should have been explicitely compiled with throttling
              support to have these flags work.  It is possible to  have  dif-
              ferent  bandwidth limits for uploads and for downloads. '-t' and
              '-T' can indeed be followed by two numbers delimited by a column
              (':'). The first number is the upload bandwidth and the next one
              applies only to downloads. One of them can be left  blank  which
              means  infinity.   A single number without any column means that
              the same limit applies to upload and download.

       -u uid Do not allow uids below uid to log in  (typically,  low-numbered
              uids  are  used  for administrative accounts).  -u 100 is suffi-
              cient to deny access to  all  administrative  accounts  on  many
              linux boxes, where 99 is the last administrative account. Anony-
              mous FTP is allowed even if the uid of the ftp user  is  smaller
              than uid.  -u 1 denies access only to root accounts. The default
              is to allow FTP access to all accounts.

       -U umask files:umask dirs
              Change the mask for creation of new files and  directories.  The
              default  are 133 (files are readable -but not writable- by other
              users) and 022 (same thing for directory, with the  execute  bit
              on).   If  new  files  should  only be readable by the user, use
              177:077. If you  want  uploaded  files  to  be  executable,  use
              022:022  (files  will  be  readable  by other people) or 077:077
              (files will only be readable by their owner).

       -v rendezvous name
              Set the Rendezvous name of the service (only available on  MacOS
              X when Rendezvous support is compiled in).

       -V ip address
              Allow  non-anonymous  FTP  access only on this specific local IP
              address. All other IP addresses are only  anonymous.  With  that
              option,  you  can have routed IPs for public access, and a local
              IP (like 10.x.x.x) for  administration.  You  can  also  have  a
              routable  trusted  IP protected by firewall rules, and only that
              IP can be used to login as a non-anonymous user.

       -w     Enable support for the FXP  protocol,  for  non-anonymous  users
              only.

       -W     Enable the FXP protocol for everyone.  FXP IS AN UNSECURE PROTO-
              COL. NEVER ENABLE IT ON UNTRUSTED NETWORKS.

       -x     In normal operation mode,  authenticated  users  can  read/write
              files  beginning  with  a  dot ('.'). Anonymous users can't, for
              security reasons (like changing banners or a forgotten .rhosts).
              When  '-x'  is used, authenticated users can download dot-files,
              but not overwrite/create them, even if they own them. That  way,
              you can prevent hosted users from messing

       -X     This flag is identical to the previous one (writing dot-files is
              prohibited), but in addition, users can't even *read* files  and
              directories beginning with a dot (like "cd .ssh").

       -y per user max sessions:max anonymous sessions
              This  switch enables per-user concurrency limits. Two values are
              separated by a column. The first one is the max number  of  con-
              current sessions for a single login. The second one is the maxi-
              mum number of anonoymous sessions.

       -Y tls behavior
              -Y 0 (default) disables SSL/TLS security mechanisms.
              -Y 1 Accept both normal sessions and SSL/TLS ones.
              -Y 2 refuses connections  that  aren't  using  SSL/TLS  security
              mechanisms, including anonymous ones.
              The  server  must  have been compiled with SSL/TLS support and a
              valid certificate must be in place to accept encrypted sessions.

       -z     Allow anonymous users to read  files  and  directories  starting
              with a dot ('.').

       -Z     Add  safe  guards against common customer mistakes (like chmod 0
              on their own files) .



AUTHENTICATION
       Some of the complexities of older servers are left out.

       This version of pure-ftpd can use PAM for authentication. If you  wan't
       it  to consult any files like /etc/shells or /etc/ftpd/ftpusers consult
       pam docs. LDAP directories and SQL databases are also supported.

       Anonymous users are authenticated in any of three ways:

       1. The user logs in as "ftp" or "anonymous" and  there  is  an  account
       called  "ftp" with an existing home directory. This server does not ask
       anonymous users for an email address or other password.

       2. The user connects to an IP address which resolves to the name  of  a
       directory  in  /etc/pure-ftpd (or a symlink in that directory to a real
       directory), and there is an account called "ftp" (which does  not  need
       to have a valid home directory). See Virtual Servers below.

       Ftpd  does a chroot(2) to the relevant base directory when an anonymous
       user logs in.

       Note that ftpd allows remote users to log in as root if the password is
       known and -u not used.


UNUSUAL FEATURES
       Ftpd never switches uid and euid, it uses setfsuid(2) instead. The main
       reason is that uid switching has been exploited  in  several  breakins,
       but  the  sheer  ugliness of uid switching counts too.  Ftpd only calls
       setfsuid(2) once, at login.

       If a user's home directory is /path/to/home/./, FTP sessions under that
       UID  will  be  chroot()ed.  In addition, if a users's home directory is
       /path/to/home/./directory   the   session   will   be   chroot()ed   to
       /path/to/home and the FTP session will start in 'directory'.

       As noted above, this pure-ftpd omits several features that are required
       by the RFC or might be considered useful at first. Here is  a  list  of
       the most important omissions.

       On-the-fly tar is not supported, for several reasons. I feel that users
       who want to get many files should use a  special  FTP  client  such  as
       "mirror," which also supports incremental fetch. I don't want to either
       add several hundred lines of code to create tar  files  or  execute  an
       external tar. Finally, on-the-fly tar distorts log files.

       On-the-fly  compression  is left out too. Most files on an FTP site are
       compressed already, and if a file isn't, there presumably is  a  reason
       why.  (As  for  decompression:  Don't  FTP users waste bandwidth enough
       without help from on-the-fly decompression?)


DIRECTORY ALIASES
       Shortcuts for the "cd" command can be set up if  the  server  has  been
       compiled with the --with-diraliases feature.

       To     enable    directory    aliases,    create    a    file    called
       /etc/pureftpd-dir-aliases and alternate lines of alias names and  asso-
       ciated directories.


ANONYMOUS FTP
       This server leaves out some of the commands and features that have been
       used to subvert anonymous FTP servers in the past, but still  you  have
       to  be  a  little bit careful in order to support anonymous FTP without
       risk to the rest of your files.

       Make ~ftp and all files and directories below this directory  owned  by
       some  user other than "ftp," and only the .../incoming directory/direc-
       tories writable by "ftp." It is probably best if  all  directories  are
       writable  only by a special group such as "ftpadmin" and "ftp" is not a
       member of this group.

       If you do not trust the local users, put ~ftp on a separate  partition,
       so  local users can't hard-link unapproved files into the anonymous FTP
       area.

       Use of the -s option is strongly suggested. (Simply add "-s" to the end
       of the ftpd line in /etc/inetd.conf to enable it.)

       Most  other  FTP  servers  require  that  a  number  of  files  such as
       ~ftp/bin/ls exist. This server does  not  require  that  any  files  or
       directories  within  ~/ftp  whatsoever  exist, and I recommend that all
       such unnecessary files are removed (for no real reason).

       It may be worth considering to run the anonymous FTP service as a  vir-
       tual  server,  to  get  automatic  logins  and  to firewall off the FTP
       address/port to which real users can log in.

       If your server is a public FTP site, you may want to allow  only  'ftp'
       and  'anonymous'  users  to  log  in.  Use the -e option for this. Real
       accounts will be ignored and you will get a secure, anonymous-only  FTP
       server.


MAGIC FILES
       The files &lt;ftproot&gt;/.banner and .message are magical.

       If  there  is a file called .banner in the root directory of the anony-
       mous FTP area, or in the root directory of a virtual host,  and  it  is
       shorter  than 1024 bytes, it is printed upon login. (If the client does
       not log in explicitly, and an implicit login is triggered by a  CWD  or
       CDUP  command,  the banner is not printed. This is regrettable but hard
       to avoid.)

       If there is a file called .message in any directory and it  is  shorter
       than  1024  bytes,  that  file  is  printed whenever a user enters that
       directory using CWD or CDUP.


VIRTUAL SERVERS
       You can run several different anonymous FTP servers  on  one  host,  by
       giving the host several IP addresses with different DNS names.

       Here  are  the steps needed to create an extra server using an IP alias
       on linux 2.4.x, called "ftp.example.com" on address 10.11.12.13. on the
       IP alias eth0.

       1.  Create  an  "ftp" account if you do not have one. It it best if the
       account does not have a valid home directory and  shell.  I  prefer  to
       make  /dev/null  the ftp account's home directory and shell.  Ftpd uses
       this account to set the anonymous users' uid.

       2. Create a directory as described in Anonymous FTP and make a  symlink
       called /etc/pure-ftpd/10.11.12.13 which points to this directory.

       3. Make sure your kernel has support for IP aliases.

       4. Make sure that the following commands are run at boot:

         /sbin/ifconfig eth0:1 10.11.12.13

       That should be all. If you have problems, here are some things to try.

       First,  symlink /etc/pure-ftpd/127.0.0.1 to some directory and say "ftp
       localhost". If that doesn't log you in, the problem is with ftpd.

       If not, "ping -v 10.11.12.13" and/or "ping -v ftp.example.com" from the
       same host. If this does not work, the problem is with the IP alias.

       Next,  try "ping -v 10.11.12.13" from a host on the local ethernet, and
       afterwards "/sbin/arp -a". If  10.11.12.13  is  listed  among  the  ARP
       entries with the correct hardware address, the problem is probably with
       the IP alias. If  10.11.12.13  is  listed,  but  has  hardware  address
       0:0:0:0:0:0, then proxy-ARP isn't working.

       If none of that helps, I'm stumped. Good luck.

       Warning: If you setup a virtual hosts, normal users will not be able to
       login via this name, so don't create link/directory  in  /etc/pure-ftpd
       for your regular hostname.


FILES
       /etc/passwd is used via libc (and PAM is this case), to get the uid and
       home directory of normal users, the uid and home directory of "ftp" for
       normal anonymous ftp, and just the uid of "ftp" for virtual ftp hosts.

       /etc/shadow is used like /etc/passwd if shadow support is enabled.

       /etc/group  is  used  via  libc,  to get the group membership of normal
       users.

       /proc/net/tcp is used to count existing FTP connections, if the  -c  or
       -p options are used

       /etc/pure-ftpd/&lt;ip  address&gt; is the base directory for the <ip address>
       virtual ftp server, or a symbolic link to  its  base  directory.   Ftpd
       does  a  chroot(2)  into  this  directory  when  a  user logs in to <ip
       address>, thus symlinks outside this directory will not work.

       ~ftp is the base directory for "normal" anonymous  FTP.   Ftpd  does  a
       chroot(2) into this directory when an anonymous user logs in, thus sym-
       links outside this directory will not work.


LS
       The behaviour of LIST and NLST is a  tricky  issue.  Few  servers  send
       RFC-compliant responses to LIST, and some clients depend on non-compli-
       ant responses.

       This server uses glob(3) to do filename globbing.

       The response to NLST is by default similar to that of ls(1),  and  that
       to  LIST  is by default similar to that of ls -l or ls -lg on most Unix
       systems, except that the "total" count is  meaningless.   Only  regular
       files,  directories  and  symlinks are shown. Only important ls options
       are supported:

       -1     Undoes -l and -C.

       -a     lists even files/directories whose names begin with ".".

       -C     lists files in as many colums as will fit on the screen.  Undoes
              -1 and -l.

       -d     lists argument directories' names rather their contents.

       -D     List  files  beginning  with  a  dot  ('.') even when the client
              doesn't append the -a option to the list command.

       -F     appends '*' to executable regular files, '@' to symlinks and '/'
              to directories.

       -l     shows  various details about the file, including file group. See
              ls(1) for details. Undoes -1 and -C.

       -r     reverses the sorting order (modifies -S and -t and  the  default
              alphabetical ordering).

       -R     recursively  descends into subdirectories of the argument direc-
              tories.

       -S     Sorts by file size instead of by name. Undoes -t.

       -t     Sorts by file modification time instead of by name. Undoes -S.

BUGS
       Please  report  bugs  to the mailing-list (see below).  Pure-FTPd looks
       very stable and is used on production servers. However it comes with no
       warranty and it can have nasty bugs or security flaws.
