hi guys, I had installed vsftpd on ubuntu server in a virtual environment.

It's on virtual box.

I just used another terminal and login using ftp (local loopback address) and When I login it is asking for a username and password which is quite okay.

But I noticed that when I login I type the valid username and on the password field,
even though I type a wrong password or either I just press enter.

It also shows Login successful. Which should not be be, or else it defeats the purpose of asking the password.

Is there something i'm missing? or this happens because i'm just doing the testing from within the same machine?

anonymous login is set to NO on vsftpd.conf

Please help, does anyone encountered same problem before.

Thank you.
