how to allow only one ip using the ftpd services in hosts.allow?
and deny all ip using the ftpd server in hosts.deny? Or there is another way to allow only one IP can access proftpd

i'm using proftpd

here is the conf file

# This is the ProFTPD configuration file
#
# See: http://www.proftpd.org/docs/directives/linked/by-name.html

# Cause every FTP user except adm to be chrooted into their home directory

# Set the user and group that the server runs as

# To prevent DoS attacks, set the maximum number of child processes
# to 20.  If you need to allow more than 20 concurrent connections
# at once, simply increase this value.  Note that this ONLY works
# in standalone mode; in inetd mode you should use an inetd server
# that allows you to limit maximum number of processes per service
# (such as xinetd)
MaxInstances            20

# Disable sendfile by default since it breaks displaying the download speeds in
# ftptop and ftpwho
UseSendfile            off

# Define the log formats

any 1 but only 1 at a time or only allow a specific IP access? –  symcbean Dec 29 '11 at 9:51

Do a

<IfUser USER>
       <Limit LOGIN>
         Allow 17.13.3.0/24 47.73.1.0/24
         DenyAll
       </Limit>
</IfUser>

in your /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf.

And the user can log only if it comes from the good IP network. Or without the IfUser for all users.

It is maybe easier to put a firewall...
