Failed
FTP Connection Failed:

# READ THIS: This example file is NOT an exhaustive list of vsftpd options.
# Please read the vsftpd.conf.5 manual page to get a full idea of vsftpd's

# Allow anonymous FTP? (Beware - allowed by default if you comment this out).
anonymous_enable=NO

# Uncomment this to allow local users to log in.
local_enable=YES
#
# Uncomment this to enable any form of FTP write command.
write_enable=YES

# Default umask for local users is 077. You may wish to change this to 022,
# if your users expect that (022 is used by most other ftpd's)
local_umask=027
#
# Uncomment this to allow the anonymous FTP user to upload files. This only
# has an effect if the above global write enable is activated. Also, you will
# obviously need to create a directory writable by the FTP user.
#anon_upload_enable=YES
#
# Uncomment this if you want the anonymous FTP user to be able to create
# new directories.
#anon_mkdir_write_enable=YES

# Activate directory messages - messages given to remote users when they
# go into a certain directory.

# Activate logging of uploads/downloads.

# recommended!

# You may override where the log file goes if you like. The default is shown

# Enable this and the server will recognise asynchronous ABOR requests. Not
# recommended for security (the code is non-trivial). Not enabling it,
# however, may confuse older FTP clients.
#async_abor_enable=YES
#
# By default the server will pretend to allow ASCII mode but in fact ignore
# the request. Turn on the below options to have the server actually do ASCII
# mangling on files when in ASCII mode.
# Beware that on some FTP servers, ASCII support allows a denial of service
# attack (DoS) via the command "SIZE /big/file" in ASCII mode. vsftpd
# predicted this attack and has always been safe, reporting the size of the
# raw file.
# ASCII mangling is a horrible feature of the protocol.

# You may fully customise the login banner string:

# (default follows)
#banned_email_file=/etc/vsftpd/banned_emails
#
# You may specify an explicit list of local users to chroot() to their home
# directory. If chroot_local_user is YES, then this list becomes a list of
# users to NOT chroot().
chroot_list_enable=YES
chroot_local_user=YES
# (default follows)
chroot_list_file=/etc/vsftpd.chroot_list
#
# You may activate the "-R" option to the builtin ls. This is disabled by
# default to avoid remote users being able to cause excessive I/O on large
# sites. However, some broken FTP clients such as "ncftp" and "mirror" assume
# the presence of the "-R" option, so there is a strong case for enabling it.
#ls_recurse_enable=YES
#
# When "listen" directive is enabled, vsftpd runs in standalone mode and
# listens on IPv4 sockets. This directive cannot be used in conjunction
# with the listen_ipv6 directive.

# This directive enables listening on IPv6 sockets. To listen on IPv4 and IPv6

According to the manpage userlist_enable=YES, Specifies that users in /etc/vsftpd.user_list are not allowed but userlist_deny=NO, specifies that users in /etc/vsftpd.user_list are only allowed..

did you check if the username is not in  /etc/vsftpd.user_list
0
 
mnis2008Author Commented:
user is listed in  /etc/vsftpd.user_list
0
 
farzanjCommented:
Remove this user from this list /etc/vsftpd.user_list.  See if you can do ftp

omarfaridConnect With a Mentor Commented:
you should not put the username there, delete it
0
 
mnis2008Author Commented:
userlist_enable = If enabled, vsftpd will load a list of usernames, from the filename given by userlist_file. If a user tries to log in using a name in this file, they will be denied before they are asked for a password

userlist_deny = This option is examined if userlist_enable is activated. If you set this setting to NO, then users will be denied login unless they are explicitly listed in the file specified by userlist _file

mnis2008Author Commented:
It works if I delete, So where should I define if the user wants to ftp.
0
 
omarfaridCommented:
why you need both

userlist_enable

and


userlist_deny

be enabled together?
0
 
mnis2008Author Commented:
I am not sure, I mentioned both because it was in the man page, If Userlist_enable is enabled then userlist_deny should be no.

So where should I define the list of users who wants to FTP to the server, what changes should be made in vsftpd.conf file
0
 
omarfaridCommented:
try to hash userlist_deny or setting it to YES

OR

set userlist_enable to NO
0
 
mnis2008Author Commented:
So by setting the either below, I should be able to add users in  /etc/vsftp.user_list to have them access to FTP

userlist_deny= YES
or
userlist_enable =NO
