Description tenox 2018-11-27 22:21:34 UTC
Enabling anonymous ftp according to the manual and handbook results in "530 User anonymous unknown". Please provide a working example / steps for setting up anonymous ftp in FreeBSD.

Could you provide a link to the handbook page that you were following please?
Comment 2 Allan Jude freebsd_committer 2018-11-28 02:26:14 UTC
Often the convention is that the anonymous FTP users' username is 'ftp'
Comment 3 tenox 2018-12-01 01:02:10 UTC
In a process of reproducing this issue on another machine I discovered that the ftp user was actually added using an unsupported method which did not compile spwd.db. Once the user was added correctly now everything works.
