NAME
       ftpgroups -  FTP	Server enhanced	group access file

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/ftpd/ftpgroups

DESCRIPTION
       The ftpgroups file contains the enhanced	group access information.

       After  login,  if the ftpacccess(4) file	includes private yes, the user
       may use the SITE	GROUP and SITE GPASS commands to specify  an  enhanced
       access  group  and  a password for that group. If the access group name
       and password are	valid, the  the	FTP Server executes setegid(2) to make
       the user	a member of the	real group listed in the ftpgroups file.

       The format for the ftpgroups file is:

       accessgroup:encrypted_password:real_group_name

       The fields are defined as follows:

       accessgroup
	     An	arbitrary string of alphanumeric and punctuation characters.

       encrypted_password
	     The group password	encrypted exactly like in /etc/shadow.

       real_group_name
	     The name of a valid group returned	by getgrnam(3C).

       The privatepw utility is	an administrative tool to add, delete and list
       enhanced	access group information  in  the  ftpgroups  file.  See  pri-
       vatepw(1M). Lines that begin with a # sign are treated as comment lines
       and are ignored.
