Look in ftpusers.  Is the user listed there?

Check the user's login shell and see if it is in
/etc/shells.  Could be this user has a different shell
from everyone else, and that shell is not listed as
ftp'able.

no the user is not in /etc/ftpusers and the shell used by the user is
ksh and that shell is listed in /etc/shells

This is wrong.  From my ftpd man page:

#      Ftpd authenticates users according to four rules.
[...]
#       2)     The  user  name  must  not  appear  in   the   file
#              /etc/ftpusers.

In linux, ksh is not included, swap it to /bin/bash.  OR if you DO have
ksh, put it in /etc/shells.  If this doesnt work, feed more info =)

responding to the some of the replies

1. the  man pages says the user SHOULD NOT BE in /etc/ftpusers

2. The user can log in(and his shell is ksh) and I have also earlier
posted that ksh is in /etc/shells

I don't know what other info would be useful in solving

Thanks

Just to make it clear, the shell's exact path has to be in
/etc/shells.  For instance, I have both /bin/csh and /usr/bin/csh
in the /etc/shells file.  So be sure that /usr/bin/ksh and /bin/ksh
are both listed.

Are you running your ftp daemon with extended logging?  In
the /etc/inetd.conf file add the '-l' (ell) to the ftpd:

ftp          stream tcp nowait root /usr/lbin/ftpd      ftpd -l

This may give you more info in your syslog file to work with.

Check your /var/adm/inetd.sec file.  Are you restricting access?
