I'm having a problem with pureftpd on OpenBSD 3.6. I have posted to
the pureftpd mailing list but unfortunately I have not received a
response. I'm hoping that perhaps someone here is familiar with
pureftpd on OpenBSD 3.6.
My problem is that I can only connect to pureftpd when I log in as
root. When I attempt to use one of the other logins on the OpenBSD
machine, I consistently get "530 Authentication Failed. Sorry" after
providing the password for the user account.
I installed pureftpd from the OpenBSD packages list for OpenBSD 3.6 for
i386 machines. I don't see a version number for pureftpd in the
pureftpd banner when I run ftp.
I've read through the docs a number of times and don't see a specific
switch to allow non root users. I'm running pureftpd from root at the
command line with the command:
/usr/local/sbin/pure-ftpd -A -B -H -l unix
I am able to ftp in as root from the OpenBSD machine using ftp localhost
and also from a Windows XP machine using ftp ipaddress. However, when I
attempt to log in to a user account it fails with the 530 authentication
I imagine I'm doing something simple wrong here but I don't know what it
is. An authentication failure sounds like the wrong password but that's
not the problem.
The pureftpd banner has [privsep] [TLS] in the banner. My problem
authentication seems to be before priviledge separation even occurs.
And TLS is off by default and I assume it's present in the banner to
indicate that it's compiled in.
I tried running the server with the --tls=0 option but I still cannot
log in as a non root user.
I have not created an ftp user account on the OpenBSD box yet.
Can someone point out what I'm doing wrong?
