ftp but not ssh
Authored by: lems1 on Jun 10, '03 12:43:38PM

That's part of your ftp server. There is an option that allows users without shell access to access your ftp server. I'm not sure what ftp server MacOS X ships by default (sftp is good enough for my users).
Hope that helps.

P.S. I'm not sure if proftpd has been ported to MacOS X, but I'm sure that there is somebody somewhere who is doing just that... Proftpd allows you to do what you are requesting with a simple "Allow..." clause in your configuration file.
