If you're using the default FTP Daemon included with Solaris, there are configuration files location here:


ls -l | grep -v total
-rw-r--r--   1 root     sys         1518 Jan 21  2005 ftpaccess
-rw-r--r--   1 root     sys          946 Jan 21  2005 ftpconversions
-rw-r--r--   1 root     sys          104 Jan 21  2005 ftpgroups
-rw-r--r--   1 root     sys          108 Jan 21  2005 ftphosts
-rw-r--r--   1 root     sys          114 Jan 21  2005 ftpservers
-rw-r--r--   1 root     sys          198 Jan 21  2005 ftpusers

Add the users to /etc/ftpd/ftpusers file. It will deny the access. FYI.
more /etc/ftpd/ftpusers
# ident "@(#)ftpusers   1.5     04/02/20 SMI"
# List of users denied access to the FTP server, see ftpusers(4).
