I use Proftpd and I am able to log in with a web browser just fine.
That said, my directories are chrooted but they are r/w not r/o. Have
you verified that these accounts work with a standard ftp client? This

starting proftpd with "proftpd -d <debug level> -n" the "-n" flag tells
the daemon not to go to the background.
