Running Fedora Core 1
ftpd_banner=Welcome to FTP
If I configure the server to be anonymous, it works fine.
I attempt to log on as a Local user that is permitted by the "permit_users" userlist and the user authentication fails at the password phase (Reference Example). (Ruled out userlist as causing this: 1. I tested users not in the "permit_users" userlist which were aborted before the password stage and the permitted users were prompted for a password. (working correctly) 2. I also disabled the "userlist_enable" and received the same results (therefore the userlist is not the problem)).
ftp> o localhost
Connected to localhost (127.0.0.1).
220 Welcome to FTP
Name (localhost:user): user2
331 Please specify the password.
530 Login incorrect.
1. What type of authentication does vsftp use for local users? Is it PAM? I would rather not manage the users through berkely database. I would rather use the local users and groups already built in.
2. Am I missing something in the vsftpd.conf?
