    The output you provided does not indicate a successful FTP login attempt. The "[INFO] Logout." output in /var/log/messages will appear even when authentication fails. Successful FTP authentication attempts will result in "is now logged in" output in /var/log/messages.

    Regarding /var/log/secure, the message also does not suggest a successful authentication.

    Thank you.
