Setting up insecure system? (FTP)

» close window

The Question is:

I'm running VMS 7.2 on my Alpha and im connecting to the Aplha using a ftp
 program. I would like to bypass protection via authorice "/defpriv=bypass".
 But setting any extra priviliges prevents my ftp login. The answer i get is =
 can't connect tp xxxxxx, P
ASS command failed: 530 login incorrect., 530 Login incorrect. (yes the last
 part repeated twize).

The Answer is :

  Why not simply set all files and all objects world (network) writable?
  (That is the equivilent, and certainly as [in]secure...)
  Please check the log files on the remote (target) system, looking for
  any reported errors.
  Please confirm that you have the current TCP/IP Services or third-party
  TCP/IP product version and current ECO kit installed.
  If the problem(s) persist, you will want to contact the Compaq Customer
  Support Center or the organization that is supporting the particular
  TCP/IP product in use.  If/when you contact the Compaq Customer Support
  Center, please expect to be asked to identify the OpenVMS TCP/IP Services
  version and ECO level, and expect to be asked details of the log file
