What are some tips on using Reporter and it's FTP logsource?
1: Questions on DNS naming:
Solution: The introduction of DNS feature into FTP log source will be in version 9.2.X versions of of Reporter. With any previous versions of Reporter, you need to use a IP address.
2: Questions on the home folder:
Solution: Yes, reporter cannot change out of the users home folder to look for acess logs. We expect them to be kept in the users home folder.
NOTE1: One exception to the above rule is this: While official support for BSD UNIX is not available, we do suggest, if you use this vendor's FTP server, you place your access logs on folder down from the home folder of the FTP logged in user.
3: Questions on LINUX vsftpd server:
TIP: You need to ensure, of course, that the VSFTPD is actualy installed to your server.
Solution: By default, the write permission for all FTP users is turned off. To turn if on, edit the /etc/vsftpd.conf file, and uncoment out this setting.
