Embedded FTP deamon

I'm trying to get ftpd installed on an embedded box and am not
able to get it to work. inetd is bringing up ftpd and I can start the connection but if i login as "ftp" I get:

331 Guest Login ok, send your complete e-mail address as password.

I enter this and get:

530 Can't set guest privileges

If I log in as "root" with the correct password I get

530 Login Incorrect

I'm using wu-ftp version 2.6.0(1) and my ftp entry in pam.d is:

auth required /lib/security/ shadow nullok
auth required /lib/security/
account required /lib/security/
session required /lib/security/

You probably haven't set it up to allow root logins or guest access. Try logging in as a normal user. I would also advise moving to vsftpd instead of wu-ftpd since it is more secure and a lot faster.
