By default, the standard ftp port, 21, is turned on, this is changeable through the config value: "port".
The "delete_departed" config option controls whether to remove files belonging to users who have left the relation to the ftp-server.
If you decide to enable anonymous access, be aware that the anonymous user, while not able to upload, will be able to browse and download files in any users home directory.
Note that due to vsftpd security settings, it is not possible for users to upload files to their chroot'd home directory. Rather, each user has a folder "ftp" created within their chroot'd home folder which they can up/download to.
When a relation is joined, a user for each juju unit is created and has relation parameters generated for ftp_user, and ftp_passwd. The active port and server are also available in the relation details.
