PAM_FTP(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		    PAM_FTP(8)

NAME
     pam_ftp --	FTP PAM	module

SYNOPSIS
     [service-name] module-type	control-flag pam_ftp [options]

DESCRIPTION
     The FTP authentication service module for PAM, pam_ftp provides function-
     ality for only one	PAM category: authentication.  In terms	of the
     module-type parameter, this is the	``auth'' feature.  It also provides a
     null function for session management.

   FTP Authentication Module
     The FTP authentication component (pam_sm_authenticate()), authenticates
     the anonymous user	(usually ``anonymous'' or ``ftp'') usually by simply
     requesting	an email address as a password.	 The supplied email address is
     broken up into its	username and host parts, and these are assigned	to the
     PAM_RUSER and PAM_RHOST facilities	respectively.

     This module is intended for the ftpd(8) service.

     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	declined.

     no_anon  Disallow anonymous access.

     ignore   Ingnore the password supplied, and do not	use its	constituent
	      parts (username and hostname) as PAM_RUSER and PAM_RHOST respec-
	      tively.
