PAM_FTPUSERS(8)             System Manager's Manual            PAM_FTPUSERS(8)

     pam_ftpusers - ftpusers PAM module

     [service-name] module-type control-flag pam_ftpusers [options]

     The ftpusers service module for PAM provides functionality for only one
     PAM category: account management.  In terms of the module-type parameter,
     this is the "account" feature.

   Ftpusers Account Management Module
     The ftpusers account management component (pam_sm_acct_mgmt()), succeeds
     if and only if the user is listed in /etc/ftpusers.

     The following options may be passed to the authentication module:

     debug         syslog(3) debugging information at LOG_DEBUG level.

     no_warn       suppress warning messages to the user.  These messages
                   include reasons why the user's authentication attempt was

     disallow      reverse the semantics; pam_ftpusers will succeed if and
                   only if the user is not listed in /etc/ftpusers.

     ftpusers(5), pam.conf(5), ftpd(8), pam(8)

     The pam_ftpusers module and this manual page were developed for the
     FreeBSD Project by ThinkSec AS and NAI Labs, the Security Research
     Division of Network Associates, Inc. under DARPA/SPAWAR contract
     N66001-01-C-8035 ("CBOSS"), as part of the DARPA CHATS research program.

     The current version of this module parses an older format of the
     ftpusers(5) file and should not be used.  ftpd(8) will keep using its
     built-in ftpusers(5) parsing code until the parser code in the pam module
     is fixed.
