Question Problems with VSFTPD


Hi guys!
Here's my problem: When my users try to download some recently uploaded zip file from my new ftp server, they receive this message:
'si verificato un errore durante la copia del file' (in italian :-)
in english probably -> error while copying file.
in /var/log/messages i see this:

Oct 2 16:55:34 ServerLinux vsftpd: pam_lwidentity(vsftpd): request failed
Oct 2 16:55:34 ServerLinux vsftpd: pam_lwidentity(vsftpd): User 'clienti' is not known.

my vsftpd.conf is absolutely normal. i will post later if you need this.
Thanks a lot!

Just off the bat, it would look like the user ID you're trying isn't valid. Either that, or there is an ftp-users file set up, and that user ID isn't allowed.

Has this ever worked, or is this a new setup?
