proftpd configuration


I am trying to require a password for anon ftp and use an alias 'avid' to correspond to ftp. I've put the following in proftpd.conf:

AnonRequirePassword on
UserPassword ftp hardtoguess
UserPassword avid 2ez
UserAlias avid ftp

Whenever I turn AnonRequirePassword on, it gives me an invalid password error. Can anyone help me?

Also, if I wish to add ftp users that do not have shell access, what file do I have to edit?
