Re: Unable to ftp as root user in hp ux 11iv3

Check and see if you have a /etc/ftpd/ftpusers file on your system.  If you do, see if 'root' is listed in it.  If it is, then root will NOT be able to log in via FTP.

 

The /etc/ftpd/ftpusers file lists users which are NOT allowed access via ftp.

 

From 'man ftpusers':

ftpd rejects remote logins to local user accounts that are named in /etc/ftpd/ftpusers.
