The Question is:

 DEC TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS VAX Version V3.3 - ECO Level 13
  on a VAX 6000-640 running OpenVMS V5.5-2H4
SYS(69)ftp bstg48
220 BSTG48 FTP Server (Version 3.3) Ready.
Connected to BSTG48.
Name (BSTG48:system): m_ramirez
530 Login incorrect.
%FTP-E-LOGREJ, Login request rejected
425 Session is disconnected.
The FTP abort before ask the password and then say "Login incorrect" What

The Answer is :

  Your OpenVMS and TCP/IP versions are woefully outdated -- V7.2 and
  V5.0A are the current versions.
  The initial assumption would be some sort of problem with the FTP
  server username -- you will need to check the local TCP/IP Services
  and SYSUAF configuration, and you will want to check system accounting,
  auditing and any (appropriately-enabled) security alarms, and you will
  want to check for log files related to the incoming connection.
