TCPGroupAccessFiles allows for access control files, the same types of files required by TCPAccessFiles, to be applied to select groups. The given group-expression is a logical AND expression, which means that the connecting user must be a member of all the groups listed for this directive to apply. Group names may be negated with a ! prefix.
The rules for the filename paths are the same as for TCPAccessFiles settings.
# every member of group wheel must connect from restricted locations TCPGroupAccessFiles wheel /etc/ftpd-strict.allow /etc/ftpd-strict.deny # everyone else gets the standard access rules TCPGroupAccessFiles !wheel /etc/hosts.allow /etc/hosts.deny
