You should use a valid unix account to connect..
To setup an anonymous ftp server requires a bit more work then just starting the ftp service.

     in.ftpd  authenticates  users  according  to  the  following

     First, the user name must be in the password data base,  the
     location  of  which  is  specified  in  nsswitch.conf(4). An
     encrypted password (an authentication token in PAM) must  be
     present.  A  password  must always be provided by the client
     before any  file  operations  can  be  performed.  For  non-
     anonymous  users,  the  PAM framework is used to verify that
     the correct password was entered. See SECURITY below.

     Second,  the  user  name  must  not  appear  in  either  the
     /etc/ftpusers  or  the  /etc/ftpd/ftpusers  file. Use of the
     /etc/ftpusers files is deprecated, although it is still sup-

     Third, the users must have  a  standard  shell  returned  by

     Fourth, if the user name is anonymous or ftp,  an  anonymous
     ftp  account  must  be present in the password file for user
     ftp. Use ftpconfig(1M) to create the anonymous  ftp  account
     and home directory tree.

     Fifth, if the GSS-API is used to authenticate the user, then
     gss_auth_rules(5)  determines user access without a password

     The FTP Server supports virtual hosting, which can  be  con-
     figured by using ftpaddhost(1M).

     The FTP Server does not support sublogins.

You must allow ftp into your Solaris machine. the user a/c should not be denied access using ftp. Check all relevant files and parameters. You can search this forum or google for examples and hints. plenty of them you can find.

Difficulty: Medium
For modern C programming, defining functions is a two step process. First, you declare a function and its signature using a prototype. Then you define the function by providing a function body that defines what the function does.
True or False?
