NAME
       ftpconfig - set up anonymous FTP

SYNOPSIS
       ftpconfig [ftpdir]

       ftpconfig -d ftpdir

DESCRIPTION
       The  ftpconfig script is	executed by the	super user to set up anonymous
       FTP. Anonymous FTP allows users to remotely log on to the FTP server by
       specifying  the	user  name  ftp	or anonymous and the user's email  ad-
       dress as	password. The anonymous	users are logged on to the FTP	Server
       and  given  access  to  a restricted file area with its own file	system
       root. See chroot(2). The	FTP area has  its own minimal system files.

       This command will copy and set up all the components needed to  operate
       an  anonymous FTP server, including creating the	ftp user account, cre-
       ating device nodes, copying /usr/lib files, and copying timezone	 data.
       The  passwd  and	 group files set up have been stripped down to prevent
       malicious users from finding login names	on the server.	The  anonymous
       file  area will be placed under ftpdir. If the ftp user account already
       exists, then the	current	FTP area is used, and the system files	in  it
       are updated. All	other files are	left untouched.	This command should be
       run to update the anonymous FTP area's configuration whenever a	system
       patch is	installed, or the system is upgraded.

OPTIONS
       -d    Create a new or update an existing	ftpdir without creating	or up-
	     dating the	ftp user account. Use this option when creating	 guest
	     FTP user accounts.

OPERANDS
       The following operands are supported:

       ftpdir
	     The  absolute pathname of the directory under which the anonymous
	     FTP area is set up.

EXIT STATUS

       0     Successful	completion

       1     Improper usage of the command

       2     Command failed
