Summary Stopping FTP

From: Antonio (

Original Question:

How do I prevent a user from FTPing into my system (i.e. root). We're
running SUN OS 4.1.3U1 on a Sparc 2. I've already prevented root from
being able to telnet.

Solution Options:
(1) Create a file called /etc/ftpusers in this file place the login name
of users you wish to deny ftp access to.

(2) Create a seperate shell for the user and disable FTP for that shell.
