Allowing anonymous file uploads

"How do we let anonymous ftp clients transfer files to our server?"

You can specify any directory in your ~/ftp directory tree to be "upload only" by creating a ".incoming" file in that directory. For example, to set up an incoming directory in "ftp/pub/incoming" perform the following steps at the Telnet/SSH prompt:

    % mkdir ~/ftp/pub/incoming
    % touch ~/ftp/pub/incoming/.incoming

This creates a directory "incoming" that your anonymous login clients can upload to but cannot download from. This deters "warez" peddlers from exploiting your site to distribute illicit software.
