I'm new in Sun Solaris.  I think it's easy but can't find the answer.  
How could I reactivate and FTP account of a user?. It seems that he type wrong his password many times. Thanks.

try /etc/ftpusers
or /etc/ftp.d/ftpusers file to control access to users.

I found what happened !

The problem began when I installed the bash shell and I put that shell to that user in /etc/passwd :

user1:x:100:1::/home/user1:/usr/local/bin/bash

When I tested changing the shell to /sbin/sh, the ftp login was successful.    

It's important to say that telnet logins were good with bash shell.

Do you know why ?  Thanks

try adding
#!/bin/bash to your ftpaccess file and see if it works.

Also do u have entry for bash shell in /etc/shells.

if not then You must add the full pathname to bash to the file /etc/shells. many systems require
this before you can make bash your login shell.

Most versions of ftpd use this file to prohibit `special' users
such as `uucp' and `news' from using FTP.
