What is the error message?

Do other users have access via FTP? If they don't the FTP service might not be started!

Does the home directory /app/facts/sm/ftp/br80/old_stats exist?

Is it accessible by old_stats?

Is old_stats perhaps present in /etc/ftpd/ftpusers? This file is meant to block users, not to allow access!

Do you use the standard Solaris FTP server or some third-party product?

old_stats is a userid, not a host. Use

ftp hostname

and wait for the prompt to log in as old_stats,

With 'hostname' I meant the name of your FTP server, not literally 'hostname'!
