FTP problems

Hello everyone.
Well, i'm having problems FTP'ing to my Linux RH box. I'm not exactly sure why im having problems. It's a new setup and i've never had problems FTP'ing to any of my RH boxes.

Basically, when I try and connect with a usern, it doesnt allow me at all.

Does anyone have suggestions?
What files should I be looking into?
What do I need to verify that I can allow FTP to the box?

FYI, I can ftp to localhost with no problems.

Thanks for the help.

Just using the default FTP prog with RH 7.3, Wu-FTP.

In regards to setting my users carefully, I set that up in one of the ftp files in /etc correct? ftpconnections, ftpaccess etc. etc.

Thanks for your help.
