After a nice long trouble-free period I’m back!
I am in the process of taking as many applications away from Windwoes based to a trusty Suse11.0 machine and the latest project is moving the FTP server away from it.
I followed the guide ]FTP Server HOWTO - openSUSE](http://en.opensuse.org/FTP_Server_HOWTO#vsftpd) and although I can connect in using Annoymous user, I wish to be able to use a local user instead.
I have read the guide and un-commented out:-
- To allow local system users to log in, uncomment
however, when i try to connect and provide a username and password pair, the server responds:
Response: 220 Welcome message Command: USER badger_fruit Response: 530 This FTP server is anonymous only. Error: Could not connect to server
It does let me in if i do not provide a username/password pair.
Not a huge problem, i can limit my port-forwarding to a specific IP address although I really would like it so I don’t have to!
