special ftp server configuration
 
Hi,

i'm searching a ftp server which i can configure to do this:

user a: write access to ftpdir and ftpdir/income
user b: read access to ftpdir, write access to ftpdir/income

I'd be glad if someone could give me a hint on how to realize it a slick
way. I know some windows servers like filezilla with which realizing
such situations is no problem, but I sadly do not have an idea on how to
do this with linux, although I am neither a google- nor a a
configuration-file hater ;)

Thanks for your help,

Martin

Filezilla's not just for Windows, but it's a client not a server. Were
you thinking of something else?

FileZilla - The free FTP solution http://filezilla-project.org/
Open Source (GNU/GPL) FTP client for Windows, Mac OS X and GNU/Linux.

They also develop a FileZilla FTP-Server which is Windows-Only: http://filezilla-project.org/download.php?type=server, which offers the options I'd like to have.

Can't you just create groups per access for each dir and list the users
in those groups?

I haven't done it, but you should be able to do this on a binary split
basis with vsftpd. Do man vsftpd.conf and look at the ftp_user and
guest_user descriptions. You can give them different abilities, so the
people you want to have restricted write ability become anonymous
ftp_users (still with password), and the people you want to have full
write ability become guest users. It doesn't appear to support per user
permissions, though there is something in the man about allowing people
who have permissions on a directory to alter it. Maybe you can create
users for your function, give them the permissions you want, and have
your user a and b login with the created roles. You'd have to play
around, I haven't.
