Solaris - Using Washington For FTP Security (Solaris 8/9)


If you're managing users with anonymous file transfer protocol (FTP), consider the Washington FTP daemon (WU-FTD). You can set download limits on a per-user basis or per-session basis with WU-FTPD. This daemon can be helpful in your efforts in providing better security and avoiding denial of service (DoS) attacks. You can set options for WU-FTPD as follows:


  • Option | Setting | Application
  • delete | yes | guest/anonymous
  • overwrite | yes | guest/anonymous
  • rename | no | guest/anonymous
  • chmod | yes | anonymous
  • umask | no | anonymous
