Added: 04/11/01 The "new ftpd" is WU-FTPD 2.4 ported to HPUX, with added bug and security fixes. It was released by HP in June '98, as a patch for 11.00. WU-FTPD contains a slew of enhancements over the "legacy ftpd." To get the new ftpd for 11.00, download and install PHNE_21936. After installing the patch, you can get information on the new features introduced by this new version of ftpd from the file: o /usr/share/doc/RelNotes_newftp.txt This version of FTP has some new configuration files that can be used to take advantage of new functionality. Sample of the new configuration files are provided in /usr/newconfig/etc/ftpd. You can edit these files as per your need and copy them to the location /etc/ftpd. NOTE: WU-FTPD has a problem with passwords starting with a '-': if a password starts with a '-', you need to prepend another '-' to the password. The new ftpd is not available for 10.x, and it is included with 11.10 and later. Note, WU-FTPD 2.6.1 binaries for 10.20 and 11.00 can be downloaded from the Liverpool archive (the package name is 'wu_ftpd'). Of course, this version is not supported by HP.
