I think pure-ftp is a great program. I've never had an issue with it.

With that being said, do you know the parameters it's being given currently?
I believe the program uses the .conf file by default now instead of you're
editing the parameters in the /etc/init.d/pureftpd file. You need to check
that anonymous access is allowed. I'm not sure that it is the default.

Do you have a firewall on the same box?
