I've just put myself through a crash-course on permissions and groups and users and sticky-bits and SUIDs and GUIDs.. and I'm now quite convinced that I know just enough to get myself into trouble.... and I have (sort of) :) ... basically, I'm stuck.
I've managed to acces the server via a local user (ie. local to the server's computer)... but that was notably simple, because I didn't have to do anyting... It must be the default setting .. (I don't know if that is pure-ftpd's default, or pureadmin's).
Using pureadmin, I added a new ad-hoc user... However, this pure-ftpd Virtual-User is not able to connect to the server.
Is this a PAM issue?... It is failing with this message(s)
[INFO] PAM_RHOST enabled. Getting the peer address
[WARNING] Authentication failed for user [adhocuser]
I've read a bit about PAM... but I don't want to go into it any deeper than need be (at the moment), as there may be a more direct pure-ftpd approach to this authentication issue..
