Added libsodium dependency as suggested by canton7.

canton7 commented on 2020-11-21 12:31

Would it be worth adding libsodium as a dependency?

pure-ftpd only compiles with argon2 support for password hashing if it finds libsodium on the system, otherwise it falls back to older schemes.

This caught me out when restoring a pureftpd.passwd file from backup on a new machine (which had argon2 hashes in it, which a new installation of pure-ftpd didn't know how to handle).

Hopefully helpful note for someone:

After running this for years, today I started getting authentication failures. I believe that the default setting from 'UnixAuthentication' was changed from Yes to No, as that was all I needed to change (to yes) In order get things working again for me.

The welcome.msg file is included as "FortunesFile" in pure-ftpd.conf and sent to the client at the beginning of the session:

nc servername 21

220-Welcome to the FTP server.

Some FTP clients (e.g. Filezilla) don't display the welcome message at all.

From the README: "--with-welcomemsg: read 'welcome.msg' files for compatibility with some other FTP servers.

This is a security flaw (anonymous users may upload 'welcome.msg' files to add random banners)."

hello. maybe i do something wrong but banner with welcome messages did not work for me when users log into ftp. i read on pure-ftpd home page that package must be compile with this flag: --with-welcomemsg in pkgbuild i see that you add file welcome.msg but flag --with-welcomemsg is missing.

Added --with-pam and set arch to 'any' as suggested by bhyoo.

Hi, Thanks for your contribution.

Could you add --with-pam to the configure options? And please change arch to any. I have tested on armv6h and aarch64.

Added virtualchroot as suggested by obones.

Thank you for this package, it works just fine.

Could you also add --with-virtualchroot to the configure options?

This would allow using symbolic links inside "chrooted" folders as they are easier to maintain than mount points.

See section "* Shared directories and chroot" in this file for more details:

Added bandwidth throttling as suggested by Zeikzeil.
