[ANNOUNCEMENT] New package: pure-ftpd-1.0.21-1

New package "pure-ftpd-1.0.21-1" has been uploaded.

Pure-FTPd is a fast, secure, production-quality
and standard-conformant FTP server. It doesn't provide useless
bells and whistles, but focuses on efficiency and ease of use.

Port Notes:

Install pure-ftpd as a NT service using the following command:

    cygrunsrv -I pure-ftpd -d "CYGWIN pure-ftpd" -p /usr/sbin/pure-ftpd.exe

Pure-ftpd does not use a configuration file but can be configured using
command-line arguments. For example if you want all users to be chrooted
to their home directories, you could use '-A' option, like this:

    cygrunsrv -I pure-ftpd -d "CYGWIN pure-ftpd" \
              -p /usr/sbin/pure-ftpd.exe -a -A

Start the service using the following command:

    net start pure-ftpd

On Windows XP you can run pure-ftpd service under Local System account;
on Windows 2003 Server you need a special user such as the one created by
ssh-host-config script. If you change service logon account, don't
forget to delete /var/run/pure-* and /var/log/pure-* because otherwise
pure-ftpd won't be able to open them after restart.

The cygwin port has been built using the following configuration:

    ./configure --with-everything --with-rfc2640 --with-largefile

Standard 'unix' authentication is supported in this build and is the
default auth type.

To enable anonymous ftp, you should create a local user 'ftp' and
regenerate your /etc/passwd file (man mkpasswd/mkgroup).

If you want to use pure-uploadscript, you can also run it as a Windows
service similar to pure-ftpd.
