There's only a default ftp user assigned in openfiler ftp service - openfiler/password.

I've been pulling my hairs out for trying to add users to the ftp server but without any luck.

I have turned on the local LDAP server within Openfiler and add users there and still no luck.

It's for production, so at the end of the day I might have to stick with the default user 'openfiler' and just change its password!

Any helps appreciated.

Been thru this and still no joy.
