Description Richard Shade 2000-06-26 16:09:51 EDT
Wu-ftpd will not accept connections from root, even thought root is in the 
ftpuser file.
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-06-26 16:19:37 EDT
It's not a bug. Read the documentation. /etc/ftpusers contains a list of users
that are *NOT* allowed to use ftp.

Letting root log in by ftp is a VERY bad idea because the ftp protocol transfers
plaintext passwords - don't do it unless you WANT your root password to be
