Description Pekka Savola 2000-08-08 04:27:15 EDT
/var/ftp for anon accounts is not automatically created.  I doubt this is a
feature, since 
anonymous connections are allowed by default.  Logins die with:

FTP LOGIN FAILED (cannot set guest privileges) for localhost.localdomain
[], ftp

Actually it is a feature. /var/ftp is in the anonftp package, along with all
other stuff you need if you want to run an anonymous ftp server.
