VSFTPD working on Redhat

So I've just spent a day messing around with the configuration files and users permissions trying to get vsftpd working on a RedHat install of Linux. There were lots of really helpful sites out there but not one of them mentioned the fact it's SFTP access only by default now. So if you're stumped by that 530 Login incorrect error, when you just *know* it's right, then this might be it.

It really does make sense but given the 20 or so sites I've been through today not one of them mentioned it. Hense the blog. In hind site it's quite obvious though really! :)
