vsftpd: anonymous FTP uploads

In order to have an anonymous-only FTP server that allows anonymous uploads, based on vsftpd running on Ubuntu 9.10, I applied the following configuration changes:

--- /etc/vsftpd.conf.orig	2010-01-13 02:00:46.287216196 +0100
+++ /etc/vsftpd.conf	2010-01-13 01:59:34.787215294 +0100

 # Uncomment this to enable any form of FTP write command.
-#write_enable=YES
+write_enable=YES
 #
 # Default umask for local users is 077. You may wish to change this to 022,
 # if your users expect that (022 is used by most other ftpd's)
 #local_umask=022
+anon_umask=0222
+file_open_mode=0666

 # Uncomment this to allow the anonymous FTP user to upload files. This only
 # has an effect if the above global write enable is activated. Also, you will
 # obviously need to create a directory writable by the FTP user.

  1. “Amitabh Bachchan is a not just an actor, but even a cultural, social and moral living legend of India as well as whole globe. He has chrismatic personality and have some moral threads, to which he always has been bonded, that is what makes him so reliable in India. I foresee lot of more to come out of him, both in artistic as well as cultural realms. I personally want to see him more commanding posts in India. Thanks a lot to give this great opportunity to praise this legend!”

  2. I’m still hoping that the Big 10 could work out. Especially since it looks like ND won’t have the Big East to fall back on anymore for other sports. Syracuse and Pitt were the 2 lynchpins of the big east basketball-wise.
