I am now running vsftp on CENTOS 4.4. Still on my BOX. not still ready for
production environment.
I want to know one more thing.

When I login to my ftp server from ftp client programme called Smart FTP
that was installed on a windows Xp machine, I can see  . DOT files under
that directory.

There are the .files I can see.

-rw-r--r--   1 ftpuser ftpuser   24 Mar 13 14:02 .bash_logout
-rw-r--r--   1 ftpuser ftpuser  191 Mar 13 14:02 .bash_profile
-rw-r--r--   1 ftpuser ftpuser  124 Mar 13 14:02 .bashrc
-rw-r--r--   1 ftpuser ftpuser  383 Mar 13 14:02 .emacs
-rw-r--r--   1 ftpuser ftpuser  120 Mar 13 14:02 .gtkrc
-rw-r--r--   1 ftpuser ftpuser  658 Mar 13 14:02 .zshrc

I created a useraccount called ftpuser as follows

useradd ftpuser -s /sbin/nologin


Then traditional . files will be created there. But I do not want to those
.files to display, When users login from their ftp clients.

How can I solve this?
