Stopping Unauthorized Users From FTPing To Your IBM i

IT Jungle just posted my new tip on stopping selected users from FTPing to an IBM i machine.

Here’s the basic problem that it solves.

Hey, Joe:

My programmers keep setting up automatic FTP downloads from the network using the wrong user profile. For security reasons, they are only supposed to use a special FTP download user profile, but they keep using their own profiles and I have no way to stop this. How can I lock down FTP so that they can only use an authorized user FTP profile for their client FTP sessions?
