FTP connection problem on new server

Solaris Server (V880) version 8

Brand new box just installed O/S, what do I need to do in order to get FTP working.

I have updated the /etc/hosts.equiv file


Problem - When trying to ftp to the server I get a login incorrect message, this is with the root user.

Are there some services or other files that I haven't updated / started.

Just figured out what it is,

the /etc/ftpusers file denies users that are populated in this file.

Answered my own question, but it could be useful for other users.
don't worry, I'm not going to give root ftp access.
