Description Pekka Savola 2000-04-15 13:21:08 EDT
The syntax for pasv-allow and port-allow seems to be wrong in ftpaccess(5)
man page.

It says:

port-allow <class> [<addrglob> ...]
pasv-allow <class> [<addrglob> ...]

This should be:

port-allow <class> [<cidr> ...]
pasv-allow <class> [<cidr> ...]

To duplicate, if you put something like:

port-allow all *
pasv-allow all *

in /etc/ftpaccess, ftpd will die with SIG11.

On the other hand this works:

port-allow all
pasv-allow all
Comment 1 Henri Schlereth 2000-07-12 19:50:10 EDT
man page still contains same info.

added to ftpaccess
port-allow all *
pasv-allow all *

Didnt get a sig-11. Fixed in Rawhide wu-ftpd-2.6.1-1
