FTP only shell for user

This was written for system users who should only have ftp access, not shell (login) access.

Copy this file to /bin/ftponly. You will have to add /bin/ftponly.sh to /etc/shells for the system to accept it as a valid shell.

# /bin/ftponly.sh
# Written by Andrew Stringer ages ago.
# Use this script as a login shell for users where you don't want shell access,
# ie. ftp only users on a webserver.
# You will have to add /bin/ftponly.sh to the /etc/shells file to allow the system to use # it.
export TERM
#Set this to point to where policy queries should be sent.
#Set this to the alert recipient.
#This may have to be modified to suit how your system defines itself.
SYSTEM=`cat /etc/hostname`
NOW=`date +%c`
