I was able to access the ftp server fine, until I added ssl_enable=YES.
Did you also create a certificate? You might want to have a read through this howto (it is a touch dated, but I think it is still largely accurate) for some tips on what you need to do to enable SSL for vsftpd.

If you did create a cert, have a look in the log files and see if vsftpd is having trouble using it. Also be sure that your FTP client can support SSL, not all of them can.

Thank you Hangdog42.
I got the server connection established.
However in status bar on my client(Filezilla) says

Connection established, initializing TLS...
Filezilla fully supports SSL/TLS so I'm guessing its stilla server problem.
What is wrong? do you know?
