unable to log as root over ftp?

Hello,

I have used different ftp clients (Fillezilla, winscp, total commander) no one is able to connect to the ftp using root?
Is it an expected bahaviour?

Server is on Fedora  20.
Client is on Windows 7

Best Regards,
Nusrat

Fedora comes with proftpd by default.

Look on your server for a file /etc/ftpusers

Users mentioned in that file are not allowed to connect via FTP.

I have vsftpd.

ok, why root and others are not allowed? I understand that it's security issues, but can you provide more details why I should not delete root from the list?
