ftp telnet enable

hi ,
i have jsut installed linux 9.0 , but i can not ftp or telnet to the system .
i have installed the ftp and the telnet server during installation .
i have also configured the files to enable the ftp and telnet , the ftp and the telnet daemons are running , but when i do ftp :

ftp 172.16.xx.xxx
Connected to 172.16.xx.xxx.
220 (vsFTPd 1.1.3)
User (172.16.xx.xxxSmilienone)): root
530 Permission denied.
Login failed.
i got the above error without prompting me for a passwrod .

while when i use telnet i am always getting wrong password , although iam sure that it is the correct password that iam using .

thanks ,
cheers

root is denied ftp rights by default in most *nix now as this is a security issue (see "man ftpusers") ... check that you can ftp as a regular user --- if yes, your ftp setup is fine ...

in solaris, remote root login can be enabled by commenting out the "CONSOLE=/dev/console" line in /etc/default/login ... you might want to check how to enable that in linux ... see "man login" for your box ...
