Hi steve_250,
First you should replace those lines :
Code:
# Set the user and group that the server normally runs at.
User                  root
Group                 root
by those lines :
Code:
# Set the user and group that the server normally runs at.
User                  nobody
Group                 nogroup
Go in your /home/ftp directory and give us the result of the "ls -lg", and tell me what are the exact parmeters you used to login your ftp server (user, pass, port, address). Try to give us the maximum details, because the 530 error always come from a small mismatch.
