+pam_ftp \- PAM module for anonymous access module
+.HP 11
+\\fR [debug] [ignore] [users=\fIXXX,YYY,\fR...]
+pam_ftp is a PAM module which provides a pluggable anonymous ftp mode of access.
+This module intercepts the user's name and password. If the name is
+\fIanonymous\fR, the user's password is broken up at the
+delimiter into a
+and a
+part; these pam\-items being set accordingly. The username (\fIPAM_USER\fR) is set to
+\fIftp\fR. In this case the module succeeds. Alternatively, the module sets the
+item with the entered password and fails.
+This module is not safe and easily spoofable.
+Print debug information.
+Pay no attention to the email address of the user (if supplied).
+Instead of
+\fIanonymous\fR, provide anonymous login to the comma separated list of users:
+\fB\fIXXX,YYY,...\fR\fR. Should the applicant enter one of these usernames the returned username is set to the first in the list:
+Only the
+service is supported.
+The authentication was successfull.
+User not known.
+Add the following line to
+to handle ftp style anonymous login:
+# ftpd; add ftp\-specifics. These lines enable anonymous ftp over
+# standard UN*X access (the listfile entry blocks access to
+# users listed in /etc/ftpusers)
