Cannot login with local user in vsftpd


Hello,

I've been struggling to get vsftpd up and running on my Fedora 9 box. If I enable anonymous login, I can log in as anonymous with no problem, but when I try to login with my local user account I receive:

331 Please specify the password.
Password:
530 Login incorrect.
Login failed.

Below is my vsftpd.conf file. I also do have my username in the user_list. I can telnet with my local user, but not ftp.

Thanks,

# Allow anonymous FTP?
anonymous_enable=NO
#

local_enable=YES
#
# Allow any form of FTP write command.
write_enable=YES
#

# if your users expect that (022 is used by most other ftpd's)

Some pointers in the log files?

Yes, I'm logging in with my correct username and password. I logging in the same way I do when I telnet into the server.

I've checked the /var/log/vsftpd.log file and all I'm given is:

Sat Jan 3 10:03:56 2009 [pid 10118] CONNECT: Client "127.0.0.1"
Sat Jan 3 10:04:06 2009 [pid 10117] [jsmith] FAIL LOGIN: Client "127.0.0.1"

I checked the /var/log/messages file but couldn't find anything either.

Thanks for your help
