Description Gabriel Schulhof 2005-08-03 00:54:31 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux ppc; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050719 Fedora/1.7.10-1.5.1

Description of problem:
I was told that the proper way to get anonymous ftp uploading /and/ downloading to work is to chcon -t ftpd_anon_rw_t those directories off /var/ftp where I want to allow users to upload.

I now have
# ls -lZ /var/ftp
drwxr-xr-x  root     root     system_u:object_r:ftpd_anon_t    FC3-PPC
drwxrwxrwt  root     root     system_u:object_r:ftpd_anon_rw_t incoming
drwxr-xr-x  root     root     system_u:object_r:ftpd_anon_t    RH8.0

and yet, when I log in anonymously via ftp and type ls -l, I get
drwxr-xr-x    7 0        0            4096 Jul 17 22:16 FC3-PPC
drwxr-xr-x    7 0        0            4096 Jul 17 21:46 RH8.0

in /var/log/audit/audit.log .

So, how do I get anonymous ftp r/w to work ?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC4 with vsftpd
2. Create /var/ftp/incoming and chcon it to ftpd_anon_rw_t
3. Attempt to access /incoming anonymously over ftp

Actual Results:  I couldn't change directories, and I got the above-mentioned audit messages.

Expected Results:  I should have been able to access the directory just fine.

Additional info:

This might have b0rken starting with selinux-policy-targeted-1.25.3-6 .

Comment 1 Gabriel Schulhof 2005-08-09 08:59:22 UTC
With selinux-policy-targeted-1.25.3-9, I still need

allow ftpd_t ftpd_anon_rw_t:dir { search read getattr write add_name };
allow ftpd_t ftpd_anon_rw_t:file { getattr create append } ;

to make anonymous r/w work.

Comment 2 Gabriel Schulhof 2005-08-09 09:11:59 UTC
Sorry. Make that second line

allow ftpd_t ftpd_anon_rw_t:file { getattr create append read } ;

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2005-08-09 11:15:53 UTC
You don't need those.  You can turn it on with the allow_ftpd_anon_write boolean.

setsebool -P allow_ftpd_anon_write=1
