General ftp permissions - vsftpd


I currently have an anonymous ftp server setup with Vsftpd. I'm using this for testing purposes only... After creating a user, how can I allow that user to have access to my ftp share? I've added the user to the ftp group but that still didn't work. How can I allow access to the share with a newly created user?

As an update, I have the username listed in vsftpd.user_list as well as userlist_enable=YES userlist_deny=NO in the conf file.

I also have local_enable=YES

A little more info... When opening up a command prompt and trying to ftp I can input any string that isn't a user and it then prompts for a password (which is normal here). However, when I actually key a real username in it says "Permission Denied". It knows that it is indeed a user and then denies permission. If I enter a string that isn't a user it asks for a password before denying access. This may be a problem with the user. I basically opened up the Add User GUI and created a username and added it to the ftp group. Should I do something else?

When you added the user to the group, does the group have read permissions on the directory? Is the home directory of the new user set to the correct path?
