Alfresco FTP 503 login incorrect

Hi all,
I am trying to access HTML files created in website, and this website is created using /wcqms/

Ok, now the problem is that I can't access the repository using "admin" login of alfresco. This login and password works for alfresco share and alfresco explorer.
The vsftpd is working fine on port 21 and I can enter in my own home directory using my login "fox" and password.
However, I get 503 login incorrect when I try to use "admin" username and password of alfresco

1. Do I need to enable any other parts, besides FTP section, in file-servers.xml located in opt/alfresco/tomcat/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco?
2. Do I need to create a login "admin" specially for FTP?
3. Do I need to switch off vsftpd?

Please help me

Here is my file-servers.xml:
