Comment 1 Bryan Leopard 2001-05-17 21:59:17 UTC
Sorry, hit the wrong button.....

I installed RedHat IA64 RC1 and afterwards installed wu-ftp as the ftp server. 
I then edited the /etc/xinetd.d/wu-ftpd file and changed 
"disable = yes" to "disable = no" and restarted xinetd. When I try to ftp it 
connects, but it will always say that my password is not valid. The user in 
question can login just fine from any tty, but the ftp server for some reason 
has a security issue with it. 

The procedure I used above to enable the ftp server works fine for i386 Redhat 
7.1, which seems to be identicle to the IA64 config.

I saw the same issue with Beta 3 IA64 as well.

Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-05-17 22:08:22 UTC
Do you see any reasons for this behavior in /var/log/messages?
wu-ftpd usually logs why an access failed.

Comment 3 Bryan Leopard 2001-05-18 20:30:20 UTC
You can close this issue:  

Notes from one of my engineers:

I finally found my problem thru searching bugzilla. /etc/shells has the wrong 
permissions and I had to set it to 644 and now everything  seems ok.
