Virtual Server User Accounts
You can give others access to your Virtual Server by providing them with Virtual Server user accounts. Virtual Server user accounts allow configured users to recieve e-mail at your Virtual Server and to upload files to your Virtual Server.

Creating and Configuring User Accounts
There are several methods you can use to create and configure user accounts on your Virtual Server.

  • iManager
    iManager Tools and wizard allow you to use your own web browser to easily create and configure user accounts.

  • Telnet/SSH
    You can create and configure user accounts during a Telnet/SSH session with your Virtual Server. Connect to your Virtual Server via Telnet or SSH and use the following commands.

    • vadduser
      Create and modify user accounts using the vadduser command.

      % vadduser
      

      This interactive utility will guide you step-by-step through the user account creation process.

      FTP and e-mail services are added to each user account by default. If you want the user account to have both FTP and e-mail privileges, just hit the "Enter" key when asked to accept the defaults.

      For the user account to have FTP privileges only, deselect the e-mail privileges by entering "mail". For the user account to have e-mail privileges only, deselect the FTP prvileges by entering "ftp". If you need to add a service not currently in the list enclosed by the square brackets ("[ ]"), then type name of the service ("mail" or "ftp") and hit the "Enter" key.

      NOTE: FTP service must be enabled if user account e-mail will be accessed via IMAP.

    • vpasswd
      Use the vpasswd command to change user account passwords.

      % vpasswd USERNAME
      

    • vlistuser
      List all configured user accounts using the vlistuser command.

      % vlistuser
      

Removing User Accounts
You can use the same methods to remove user accounts from your Virtual Server.

  • iManager
