having some really strange sympton here,

FTP Server is nw6.5/sp8, patch with post-sp8 patches.

Access from the ftp server is towards "home-dir" on a cluster;
Cluster is running NW65/sp, patch with post-sp8 patches.

same tree, same context, same ip-network,

So, issue the,,
login in through FTP from command-promt and using correct
name/password works 100%

BUT, in Nrm/Portal, the number of "failed logins" increases for each
FTP login I do...even though successfull ??

This off course has the effect that edir eventually does a intruder
lockout on the user even though the nwftpd doesn't see any issue..
