FTP access returns "Login incorrect"...

FTP access returns "Login incorrect"...

Thank you for reading my question!

I have recently upgraded my Slackware Linux from 1.2.13 to 2.0.30.  After the
upgrade, ftp access for users returns a "Login incorrect" message.  The only
messages logged to the meesages file are USER username, PASS password, the
login failure.  Users have no problem with telnet, and are using the same
passwords.  I have verified that the user's shells are valid.  Just to make
things interesting, anonymous ftp works perfectly!

The ftp daemon I am using is wu.ftpd.  Any and all suggestions will be greatly
appreciated.  Thank you in advance.

Users added with "adduser" on the Slackware 1.2.13 kernel had their encrypted
passwords located in /etc/passwd.  the new Slackware 2.0.30 kernel looks for
the user and password in /etc/shadow.  Try removing a user from /etc/passwd and
adding them back using "useradd -g groupname -m -s shecll -u uid# username"
This should place an entry in /etc/passwd for the user, but it will have an "x"
in the password field.  An entry will also have been made to /etc/shadow for
the user.  Reset the password and the encrypted password shows up in
/etc/shadow.  The user should then be able to ftp to the 2.0.30 box.


1. how to set /etc/syslog.conf to trace a FTP "login incorrect"

When I start "ftp myrh72", i am asked for a user and a password.
Then "Login failed" message comes to the client machine.
Can someone tell me the "/etc/sysclog.conf" settings so the server
gives me a file with the error that i have ?
Thanks. Sebastian.
now, in "/var/log/messages" i have "failed login from", with
no details.
