And here is what I see...

    With an anonymous login I see an empty directory, so your FTP server works, but you probably need to specify an [ anon_root](vsftpd.beasts.org/vsftpd_conf.html) directory to have the right contents appear (and setting it to / is not the best) – HBruijn Sep 9 '15 at 18:44
  • I understood. Based on this, I ended up understanding that my final problem was that the user's directory didn't exists for the user I wanted to login with. To be more specific, I wanted to log with user alex, and /home/alex didn't exist, so it was not working. Everything is now working fine! Thanks a lot for pointing the way. You made me understand that the arrival directory was the key to my FTP issues – Alexandre Bourlier Sep 10 '15 at 0:42
