comment As root, how do I create a limited FTP user who only has read access to a few folders?
and say for example in the 'candidates' group, if there is another user called 'test2', do u want a separate set of permissions for that user?

which FTP server type have you installed on the server? And don't you think its a better idea to chroot(jail) the FTP users in question to restrict access?

@Massimo - Sorry, I meant ISP's Router. The server is directly connected to it, I can access the internet from the server but when I ping tht IP from outside, I get no response and I also cannot access tht IP using Remote Desktop. Are there any other services enabled?

comment Assigning a public IP on Windows Server 2008 R2
Thanks for your reply. I assigned IP to the ext NIC and assigned a default gateway. The internal NIC, as u advised, I gave only an IP without gateway. Then the default route was going to the correct gateway. Now, I can access the internet from this server but when this IP is pinged from outside, there is no reply and I also cannot access using Remote Desktop. Is there something I am missing?

@EEAA - At the moment, the server's directly connected to the ISP's modem. After testing, it'll be going behind a firewall(Fortigate100a)

How about trying to uncomment the "#password [success=1 default=ignore] pam_unix.so minlen=1 sha512" part and see if that works?
