Remote users cannot access the Solaris 8 FTP server.   In FileZilla client they see
< 220 blade150 FTP server (SunOS 5.8) ready
> USER xyz
< 331 Password required for xyz.
> PASS (hidden)
< 530 Login incorrect
530 Login incorrect
Connection closed.

I already checked the following:
a) there is a /etc/ftpusers file and it does not contain user xyz
b) in /etc/inetd.conf there is a line
ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/in.ftpd in.ftpd
c) there is /usr/sbin/in.ftpd file
d) user xyz can ssh into the server
