The question would be: how to restrict in.ftpd access depending on
username/remote_host pairs?

user3:none #deny all (he does not need ftpaccess at all)
ok i can include user3 to ftpusers, but how about user1 and user2?
Any ideas?
which of ftpd`s has such feature? alternate solution?


Best regards,
Gediminas Grigas
