    my windows machine. But, if i use nis user it gives the below error

    530 User bsfr access denied.
    Login failed.

    Sounds like your authentication setup for the services differ.
    I can only assume that you authenticate your users via pam. So have a look
    in the pam configuration for login and ftp and compare both. I'd guess that
    the login version has an additional test for the nis users that lacks the
    ftp version.
