RE: Deny directory listing on vsftpd anonymous upload

You are absolutely right, this works. 

Only the thing is, in this case, the users must be able to see the upload directory when (s)he logs into the server (that is to get a directory listing. Why? Well, let's face it: they are ... users). If I use the dir_list=no option, (s)he can't see the initial directory listing and I get a lot of complaints. 

Only thing I came up with is to chmod the upload directory to deny the read rights. I guess what I'm looking for is a bit out of the scope for vsftpd (or for any ftp daemon).

You can specify per-user settings with vsftpd. In the config file you 
can define a directory to hold the per-user config files 
(user_config_dir). In that directory you create a file for each user 
who's configuration needs to differ from the default. You only need to 
put the non-default settings in to the file.

Create a file in your user_config_dir called ftp (ftp is the anonymous 
user) with the line:

That should give a "550 Permission denied" message if the anonymous user 
attempts a directory listing.
