    Hi all,

    I installed via yast the pure-ftpd server on a SuSE
    11.1 computer. Everything works fine, but.... I want to
    give a special user access to this service, so added this
    user via "pure-pw useradd ...." with the correct UID and
    GID. Then I did "pure-pw mkbd" to add it to the database
    and controlled this via "pure-pw list". Everything seems
    to work fine, but if this user tries to invoke the service
    from elsewhere, he gets always the error: "Only anonymous
    FTP is allowed here". What's wrong, did I miss something?

    Any hint appreciated,
