    ftpd? Isn't that controlled by xinetd? Or do you have a stand-alone FTP daemon?

    well - it doesn't appear to come with one

    I've tried to get VSFTPD to work - but even after I edit /etc/vsftp.conf to my liking - I'm still unable to login with anything but anonymous and I can't upload :S

    How did you install vsftpd? You will need to ensure that it has PAM support to be able to log in with other users.
    Have you checked the logs after you've tried to log in as another user for any clues as for why it doesn't allow you to?

    checking logs -

    I checked the logs and saw nothing unusual - what IS unusual is that although I tirned OFF anonymous logins, it still will only allow anonymous logins - I've read the man pages and don't seen any reason why it wouldn't work - It is set up with PAM support and from what I can tell everything is right,..

    What do the logs report when you try to log in? Check not only /var/log/messages, but /var/log/secure as well.
