FTP: Wrong authentication setup for alfresco authenticator

Hello!
I´m having some trouble with the FTP Configuration on an Alfresco Labs installation.
The FTP Server is being started, but it is being impossible to connect to it while the authenticator can´t be recognized correctly.
As the log says, there is an wrong authentication setup for alfresco authenticator.

I´m am using Afresco with CAS-SSO and LDAP Authentication (Apache DS).

Here is my config for the FTP server in the file-servers.xml:


    <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="FTP Server">
     <serverEnable enabled="true"/>
          <debug flags="File,Search,Error,Directory,Info,DataPort"/>
     <port>21</port>
     <authenticator type="alfresco">
     </authenticator>
   </config>

And this is the important log output part after starting Alfresco:


12:51:37,904 User:System ERROR [alfresco.smb.protocol] FTP server configuration error, Wrong authentication setup for alfresco authenticator
