Hi,

 

Please check the userid p2_opm is available in /etc/ftp/ftpusers file. If not, make the entry.

Hi

As suggested I had added the entry in /etc/ftp/ftpusers, but still facing the same issue

 

adeagimh:/etc#ftp adeagimh

I am also wondering about the error message :

331 Password required for p2_opm.

Have you made sure that user's shell is in /etc/shells?

This isn't an error.  It is an info message about security.

Re: 530 Login incorrect.

Add the user's shell in /etc/shells. It should work...

# cat /etc/shells
/bin/ksh
/bin/bash

Re: 530 Login incorrect.

if you add ftpusers your user_name, it won't be allowed ftp access, like Steven stated..

Hi Satget

 

It worked, but adding the user shell in /etc/shells. But could you please describe the logic behind ftp /etc/shells, should we could had idea behind the solution.

 

Thanks to all Engineer for your valuable time to reply my query.

If you don't have your shell in /etc/shells, ftp will not let you login.  See ftpd(1m):

+  The user must have a standard shell returned by getusershell(3).
