The Question is:
I'm currently running a VAX as follow:
VAXstation 4000-90 running OpenVMS V5.5-2H4
DEC TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS VAX Version V3.3
The system is a controller for a VSAT (Very Small Aperture satellite Terminal)
network. We are in the necessity of running an ftp server to move files from
the VAX to our LAN (PCs). I've enabled the FTPD and TELNET following the
excellent instructions I g
ot from the WIZARD and the online documentation, but I cannot proceed because
of this error when trying to start an FTP session towards the VAX:
220 tes181 FTP Server (Version 3.3) Ready.
Name (172.16.100.181:fulvio): dama
331 Username DAMA requires a Password.
530 Failed to create child process. Login rejected.
Remote system type is VMS.
The SET LOGIN/INTERACTIVE says:
%SET-I-INTSET, login interactive limit = 64, current interactive value = 3

Please notice that for "practical" reasons the software cannot be upgraded, the
machine is running a specific software for the VSAT, everything have to be
done with as small as possible modifications to the existing OS.
Thank you for the help, regards Fulvio Postogna
The Answer is :
Your OpenVMS VAX and TCP/IP Services versions are woefully out
of date, and TCP/IP Services is not supported. Many problems
have been fixed since these versions were current, and many new
product enhancements have been added since these versions.
Please move to at least TCP/IP Services V4.0 with the then-current
ECO, if not to TCP/IP Services V4.2 with ECO. Better, please
upgrade to current OpenVMS VAX and TCP/IP Services versions.
The UCX$FTP user appears excessively privileged. Typically,
only TMPMBX and NETMBX privileges are present.
Ensure that the UCX$FTPD image is correctly installed.
Ensure that the current Compaq C RTL ECO is installed.
Consider increasing the process BYTLM on the UCX$FTP username.
