i would like to add an ip acl for one user of my ftp, the other users
don't have to be controlled by any ip acl (the ftp is running for the
moment on only one IP address)

I've seen a simple directive that can be used, according to
#/web/abcd is the home directory of user "abcd"

Order Allow,Deny
Deny ALL

I've tried to replace "allow" with "allow from", but with no success :
when i add this directive my proftpd.conf then restart, i get an error
"550 PWD: Invalid argument" when i log in with my ftp client with
"abcd", whether i access from IP or not (the other users log in
I can control access to directories per user without IP control, so I am
at least accustomed to Proftpd's basic directives

Can you help me find the good directives ? Thanks !
