     ftpconfig - set up anonymous FTP

     ftpconfig [ftpdir]

     ftpconfig -d ftpdir

     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  address 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  sys-
     tem files.

     This command will copy and set up all the components  needed
     to  operate  an anonymous FTP server, including creating the
     ftp user account, creating 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.

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

     The following operands are supported:

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

     The following exit values are returned:

     0        Successful completion

     1        Improper usage of the command

     2        Command failed
