Check all your variables with the vsftpd.conf manual page found here:

No need to yell and type a bunch of ?'s.. geez.. So what user are you trying to login as? Are you sure they're not in the ftpusers file to not have access.. can't really help you out much if you truly are typing the password wrong.. unless you want to provide that info..
