Exclamation vsFTPd deny everyone. Why?


I am completly confused here...

I am running vsFTPd on a RH9 box using 2.4.20-20.9 as a web server for family that use IE to ftp in/out files. No matter what account I try to use, everyone is denied access. I set this up like I have many times before and I must be missing something. Please do not take that like I know what I am doing! Below is my vsFTPd.conf:


anonymous_enable=NO
local_enable=YES
write_enabled=YES
local_unmask=022
dirmessage_enable=YES
xferlog_enable=YES
xferlog_std_format=YES
idle_session_timeout=600
data_connection_timeout=120
ftpd_banner=Welcome message
ls_recurse_enable=YES
pam_service_name=vsftpd
userlist_enable=YES
listen=YES
tcp_wrappers=YES


I am trying to create a secure FTP, that does not allow anonymous users, for family using IE to ftp in/out files. I want only persons with local machine accounts to be able to log on and have them restricted to their home directory. The accounts all have a home directory under /home/<username>. What am I missing!?!?!?!?

Please use the SEARCH function of this forum. vsftpd questions are quite a "top" topic on the Networking and other forums. For more information you might want to check out http://www.linux-corner.net/linux/services/ftp.html which contains detailed instructions on each of the above aspects...

Sorry, but...

I have done a search and reviewed previous posts and the posts listed below concerning vsFTPd. Unfortnatly I have not encountered a thread that discusses my problem.
I had my vsFTPd working before with these exact settings but now after someone enters a username and password, they are denied access no matter what.
I will continue studying the link you provided but I was hopping that someone has encountered this before.
