I've had my FreeBSD 4.9 server running for quite some time now and just recently I've been having problems with user accounts. The problem first appeared as I was trying to log into my domain via samba and found the log entry stating `no such user 'user_name_here'`. Now Proftpd is doing the same thing. I can access the box via SSH with the same account. I've been able to correct my samba logon problem by changing my shell with vipw from sh to csh and then back to sh again. But Proftpd still refuses any login. I tried creating a fresh 'test' account and experienced the same issue. Again; SSH works under all circumstances but any other program authentication fails with the same log entry: Mar 4 16:03:07 telzar proftpd: telzar (hidden[hidden]) - no such user 'hidden' At around the same time I started getting the following log entry as well: [2004/03/04 16:00:27, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection(599) arkain (192.168.0.12) Can't change directory to /tmp (Permission denied) Cheers, Phil P.S. I'd provide more info but I don't really understand the source of this problem so feel free to ask away! _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
