FTP: Can't Log In

I can connect to the ftp server (either remotely or locally), but can't

looks like this:

331 Password required for myusername.
530 Login incorrect.
Login failed.

I am using the same username and password I use to log into the
computer....into Linux itself.  I understand /etc/ftpaccess shouldn't
have anything to do with this.  FYI, I CAN telnet both locally and

Are you also having problems with IMAP/POP servers?

Try to login once more, let him return you a "login incorrect" error,

Do a ps -aux |grep ftpd

If the ps -aux returns ftpd running as some xy user, then we are having
the same problem :(
