  Read the ftpd(1M) manpage and/or the article in the March/April 1994
  Pipeline. However, both discussions have a serious error: the ftp
  account's home directory (/usr/people/ftp) should be owned and
  writable only by root, NOT ftp. You might also want to make the 'pub'
  directory "sticky" with 'chmod +t' (like /tmp and /var/tmp) so that
  one user can't delete another's files. Two scripts which set up a
  secure or restricted anonymous FTP account are at
  ftp://viz.tamu.edu/pub/sgi/software/ftp/.
