when you ftp in, type 'pwd' and see what you get....

for anon, you should be in the /var/ftp/pub directory...for a user, you'll probably be in their home directory

if not, you may have to set anon_root equal to /var/ftp/pub in the vsftpd.conf file.

JammyPakCommented:
you already have anonymous ftp running (from your other question...)

try logging in as a 'real' non-root user to see if that works (to confirm that it doesn't)

then, you need to find out where your pub directory is, and create a subdir called download in there
