Default Problem with PureFTPd

hi all, follow the steps according to Howto http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual-ho...-ubuntu-12.04.

the problem is that I can not connect to the server via FTP Filezilla for example. what I see in the file var / log / auth.log is:

Server pure-ftpd: pam_unix (pure-ftpd: auth): check pass; unknown user
Server pure-ftpd: pam_unix (pure-ftpd: auth): authentication failure; logname = uid = 0 euid = 0 tty = pure-ftpd ruser = rhost = exampleuser

and in the /var/log/message I get the following:

*Server pure-ftpd: (? @ 100.x.x.x) [INFO] New connection from 100.x.x.x
Server pure-ftpd: (? @ 100.x.x.x) [INFO] PAM_RHOST enabled. Getting the peer address
Sep 4 11:45:12 server pure-ftpd: (? @ 100.x.x.x) [WARNING] Authentication failed for user [exampleuser]
Sep 4 11:45:12 server pure-ftpd: (? @ 100.x.x.x) [INFO] Logout.

if I can help with this, thank you very much

Is this a virtual machine or a physical server?

Did you follow the tutorial as close as possible? Maybe you made a typo or some other error somewhere...

I do not think, do the same installation 2 times, reinstalled operating system to rule out any errors.

Did you try both active and passive transfers in your FTP client?

estimated, modify parameters (Active and Pasive) in FTP client does not work. when I try to connect to the FTP server via LAN, via console, I get the following message:

220---------- Welcome to Pure-FTPd [privsep] [TLS] ----------
220-You are user number 1 of 50 allowed.
220-Local time is now 09:40. Server port: 21.
220-This is a private system - No anonymous login
220-IPv6 connections are also welcome on this server.
220 You will be disconnected after 15 minutes of inactivity.
Name (100.x.x.x:user): exampleuser
331 User exampleuser OK. Password required
Password:
530 Login authentication failed
Login failed.
Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.
ftp>

thanks.

Looks like you're using a wrong password. Have you tried to set another one?

If that doesn't help: do your passwords contain special characters?

Not sure what's wrong, but you must have done something wrong. I know that the tutorial works as described, I've used it many times. Please double-check.
