Thanks to all who have responded.

My original post:

As usual, Casper Dik had the answer. The permissions were wrong in
~ftp/dev/*. This fixed my problem with guest group accounts and
anonymous accounts. Now if I could just figure out why a call to
socket() for a real user returns a Permission Denied.
