10.3: A fix for proftpd not allowing user login
Authored by: Pex on Nov 25, '03 08:21:04PM

Unfortunately, the fix didn't work for me. I had to:

1. add new users to the 'staff' group (Panther doesn't);
2. set 'authentication_authority' to ';basic;' for new users in Netinfo Manager;
3. use 'openssl passwd {password}' to encrypt;
4. paste the encrypted password in the proper field within Netinfo Manager.

I don't know whether this is orthodox, but it worked on my system. Note that only the users I created after upgrading to 10.3 were unable to login to my FTP server.
