    i just install proftpd in my fedore machine.

    service is up
    netstat -an | grep 21 is listening also

    but when im trying connect with ftp client, it said login incorrect.
    i did a searching around and it could be user shell issue.
    i set to /sbin/nologin of that user but still encounter the same problem.
    Any idea of this problem?

    Did you disable SELinux?

    thanks for reply...

    The problem has resolved.
    The reason is because the user account is inside /etc/ftpusers
    this file is deny the user to get in via ftp.
    After remove the user account , the user is able to login via ftp.
