    i dont know about this, but someone kind of mentioned that u can create user accounts on your leeware box so that different people can log in.

    this idea becomes handy if u are planning to rent your leeware to someone. u are not gonna give him your root account, only a username for security purposes.

    does anyone know whether this is true or not. if true, how to do it.

    actually, i am trying to mess around with it. under webmin/ webmin users. there are lots of settings and i need this person to only log in via ftp, vncviewer transfer files but cant change passwords. what settings can u recommend.

    To create a new user: useradd username
    To set the password for the user: passwd username
    You can do this in Putty as root. To see all the commands about users type user and press Tab twice. To see how to use a command like useradd, type: useradd --help

    thanks for your help. these users will not have access to change root password or mess up with the account?

    No, users can't do anything harmful to the system. They are also confined to their home directories, most likely /home/username/. They can run all the softwares you've installed such as vnc, ftp, wine, etc.

    I found all they need is access to the gui.. really. If they need anything else they can contact me and I will change it.
    And I gave them ftp, not sftp access. With the stp acces they can only dl, not delete, from a certain folder. Perfect.
