What did Red Hat support say? You're paying them, you might as well get them to help.

You can login in the linux workstation right? Are you trying to login with anonymous account or any system user account?

I don't get it, if you want to login with windows using anonymous account then why you are editing the /etc/vsftpd/user_list file? You said earlier that the login works fine when that file is not edited.

So you want to disable the anonymous logins right? For that you need to edit this particular line in /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf file in the following manner:
Quote:
anonymous_enable=NO
