No; if it were an /etc/hosts.deny or /etc/hosts.allow issue, you
wouldn't even get that far.  However, ftp denies normal users the
ability to log in if their username is listed in /etc/ftpusers, or if
the user has a non-standard shell.  (A shell is considered
non-standard if it's not listed in /etc/shells).

Could either of these be the case?
