Hi all,

I have a question that would normally belong on another list (ProFTP)
however, as far as I can see this issue seems to be with FreeBSD.

ProFTPD is set up and running fine, but I can't seem to get the server to
recognize regular UNIX ftp and Anonymous FTP no matter what I do with the
config file.

When I set up strictly for UNIX loging (real user) server log says:
'USER anonymous not found in ..."

It seems to be ignoreing the <Anonymous> tag altogether.

Has anyone else seen this? If so, how was it resolved?

Copy of config:

<VirtualHost mydomain.ca>
User unixuser
Group unixuser
<Directory /*>
        AllowOverwrite on
ServerName mydomain.ca
        <Anonymous ~/ftp>
                UserAlias anonymous unixuser
                User unixuser
                Group unixuser
                AuthAliasOnly on
                AnonRequirePassword on
                RequireValidShell off
                <Directory *>
                        <Limit WRITE>
              <Directory incoming/*>
                        <Limit ALL>
                        <Limit STOR CWD>
