When I try connecting from ftp client like reflection or coreftp,i get correct certificate but then my login credentials do not work and I get messages as below on coreftp console
0 ProFTPD 1.3.0a Server (ProFTPD Installation) [IP Address]
234 AUTH SSL successful
TLSv1, cipher TLSv1/SSLv3 (DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA) - 256 bit
331 Password required for test.
530 Login incorrect.
This's happening even when I ensured password for test is correct.
In my proftpd.conf,i am using TLSProtocol SSLv23

When a client is refused, the *reason* of the refusal is not normally reported to the client, because the client might be a hostile intruder at that point. The "530 Login incorrect" is a general "no, you won't get in" message - it does not reveal whether the username exists or not.
The proftpd log files may have more detailed information about the login attempt, including the reason why access was denied.

1) backout the ssl configuration and see if the problem persists. You may need to merely follow the proftpd isntallation guide more carefully. This issue may not be related to ssl. I've seen nothing to indicate that it is.
2) If it works without ssl, recheck the procedure you used to generate that huge 256 bit cypher and file permissions.

The problem was neither with SSL nor with proftpd settings.Actually what happened was I had CHROOT setting done in proftpd directory so as to jail users in a specific directory only.However the user was not having X permissions on directory!!!I am surprised however to see that failure of CHROOT should cause logoff!
Any ways I have another problem-I am able to successfully connect to the server using coreFTP but no luck using Reflection.May be I'll post another thread.
Thanks all again for your generous help.
