So for a school assignment, I have to set up a FTP server (vsftp) on OpenSUSE. The teacher told us to use a chroot list, but whenever I use a chroot list, all users have full control over the whole filesystem. What am I doing wrong?
Situation A directory containing data. Inside of that directory are 2 other directories. One of them belongs to Herman and the other one belongs to Franz. Franz and Herman should be able to work in their own directory, so I pointed their home directory to the respective directories (/data/Franz and /data/Herman). Herman shouldn't be able to read or write in Franz' directory, and vice versa. Lastly I changed the rights and ownerships of the directories to look something like this:
drwxrwxr-x 15 Herman FTP 4096 May 13 15:23 Herman
drwxrwxr-x 18 Franz FTP 4096 May 13 14:48 Franz
Here are the things I've changed in the
vsftpd.conf file. Beside that, everything is untouched and default.
write_enable = YES
local_enable = YES
chroot_local_user = YES
allow_writeable_chroot = YES
anonymous_enable = NO
listen = YES
listen_ipv6 = NO (we may do not use IPv6)
I have already tried to uncomment
chroot_list_enable=YES and create the file containing all the users I want in the chroot_list. This seems to break things. Whenever I uncomment everything regarding to chroot_lists, it works as expected, but it is "wrong" according to my teacher. He isn't really explaining things clear, so thats why I'm asking here!
Could anyone push me into the right direction? Thanks :)
Many thanks <3
