Linuxhelp _ Technical Support _ Ftp Configuration

I am trying to FTP files from a FTP client to a machine running Mandrake 9.0.
So far I have set up a user and password on the Mandrake side. (I have also tried the default ftp user 'nobody'). I have added ftpd: ALL to /etc/hosts.allow and there are no entries in /etc/hosts.deny.

When I try to connect from the FTP everything works fine unil it gets to the password, which is rejected.

I also tried to connect with SFTP/SSH. It completes the SSH key exchange and fails with the same password rejection!!!

I use this same client (WS_FTP Pro) successfully with other systems (i.e. it works fine with SCO Unix).

There must be something simple going on here that I obviously don't understand. Can anyone help me with this?

Thank you
