       ftpgroups  -  group  password file for use with the SITE GROUP and SITE
       GPASS commands.

       The file is the group password file for use with	 the  SITE  GROUP  and
       SITE GPASS commands.

       To  enable the use of this file, the entry must be made in the configu‐
       ration file

       This file contains an alphanumeric string, encrypted password, and  the
       actual  group  name  from the file.  Each entry is separated by After a
       user logs in, the SITE GROUP and SITE GPASS commands  may  be  used  to
       specify an enhanced access group and associated password.  If the group
       name and password are valid, the user becomes  (via  a  member  of  the
       group specified in the group access file,

       The format of the group access file is:

       where  access_group_name	 is an arbitrary (alphanumeric and/or punctua‐
       tion)  string.	encrypted_password  is	the  password  encrypted   via
       crypt(3),  exactly like in real_group_name is the name of a valid group
       listed in

       NOTE: For this option to work for anonymous FTP users, the  ftp	server
       must  keep  permanently	open  and the group access file is loaded into
       memory.	This means that:

	      (1)  the ftp server now has an additional file descriptor	 open,

	      (2)  the	necessary  passwords  and access privileges granted to
		   users via SITE GROUP will be static for the duration of  an
		   FTP session.

       If you have an urgent need to change the access groups and/or passwords
       *NOW*, then kill all of the running FTP servers.
