Did you set permissions?

When you set up the FTP Server, you were probably logged in as Root. You probably left the permissions as such, which means nobody can login without your password. You need to go back in(as Root) and change the permissions
to allow other users(computers) to login and interact as
you desire. Be sure about the level of access you want to allow before you change the permissions. Good luck. chuck
