I've been trying to ftp between two linux boxes.  one is mdk6.0 and the other
is a mdk 7.0.  it's been a complete nightmare.
it's telling me that the logins are incorrect.

[phrostie@agusta phrostie]$ ftp atlanta
Connected to atlanta.ga.
220 atlanta.ga FTP server (Version wu-2.6.0(1) Tue Jan 4 19:41:20 GMT 2000) 
331 Password required for phrostie.
530 Login incorrect.
Login failed.

i know they are correct because i can rsh to the same box with the same
login/passwds.  i've done this before on older dist's(with more lacks security).
i'm guessing it has something to do with shadow passwords.

any ideas?

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of Dos
and danced the skies on Linux silvered wings.
