Hi everyone,

I am relatively new to FreeBSD and have what I hope is a simple
question regarding proftpd and PAM authentication.

I have just installed proftpd via the available port, and after
installation a message was returned saying:

Make sure you have the following lines in your PAM configuration
file so that ProFTPd's PAM module can authenticate users correctly.

ftpd auth    required         try_first_pass
ftpd account required         try_first_pass
ftpd session required

After reading into this I am confused as to where exactly I should
be entering this information. According to the proftpd README file,
in FreeBSD it likes to get this information from /etc/pam.conf,
whereas LINUX looks in /etc/pam.d/ftp, and what topped it off for
me is the / etc/pam.d/ftpd file.

Where is the best place to have this configuration information; is
it required considering there is already lines in /etc/pam.d/ftp;
if required should I overwrite /etc/pam.d/ftp or append to the
beginning/ end of the file?

I hope there is enough information here for someone to help. Any
help provided is greatly appreciated in advance ;)

Actually that isn't required anymore and is a holdover from earlier
versions. The pam configuration for ftpd is in /etc/pam.d/ftpd and
already contains the required entries. I should probably just remove
it to avoid confusion.
