Description Vidar Langseid 2001-12-20 07:23:30 EST
Description of Problem:
I am trying to dissable AUTH authentication from wu-ftp
$ man ftpd says
"The  -I  option disables the use of RFC931 (AUTH/ident) to attempt to
determine the username on the client."

So I change to the following in /etc/xinetd.d/wu-ftpd (and restarts xinetd)
server_args             = -l -a -I

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
wu-ftpd-2.6.1-16.7x.1 (yepp, the one from the errata )

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use ipchains and enable packet logging of AUTH packages (port 113)
2. ftp to ftpserver
3. take a look in /var/log/message on the ftpserver:
Dec 20 12:59:27 localhost kernel: Packet log: output ACCEPT eth0 PROTO=6
myftpserver:35938 myclient:113 L=60 S=0x00 I=52407 F=0x4000 T=64 SYN (#2)

Actual Results:
wu-ftp sends AUTH packages even though I have dissabled it

Expected Results:
I don't excpect any AUTH packages to be sendt

Additional Information:
I was temporary confused since both wu-ftpd and krb5-workstation has a ftpd
man page ("$man ftpd" gave me the one from krb5-workstation):
$ rpm -ql krb5-workstation|grep ftpd
rpm -ql wu-ftpd|grep ftpd|grep man

Please use vsftpd, wu-ftpd is not maintained anymore.
