It could be, I know that proftpd will allow you to "chroot" ftp sessions
to the user's home dir. I think you have to do that on purpose though.
Have you tested your pam_ldap setup with other services to make sure it
is correct? I think the default setup requires the user to have a valid
shell (listed in /etc/shells) did you check that? What does "getent
passwd username" show for a user who can't log on. Also, make sure that
"AuthPAM on" is in your config file.

As for the default path for users to see (mentioned in another message)
I believe that all you need is a section like this: "DefaultRoot
/home/ftp" or whatever path.

It sounds like you really need to take a few minutes to go through the
manpage for proftpd.conf to get a general overview of the options before
you start trying to wrangle the config file.
