Default shell access?

I don't know, but may the ftp-user must have shell access. As I just read on the proftpd site, the option

Code:
DefaultRoot ~
will make a chroot as soon, as the user logs in, so the ftp-session can run in a kind of sandbox. If the user hasn't got shell access, this might end up in

Code:
$> chroot /dev/null
-> timeout! . So try it and give the ftp user shell access...then retry. If possible you can check the

Code:
/var/log/auth.log
