The default xinetd configuration for gssftp calls ftpd with the "-a"
flag, which requires clients to authenticate using strong authentication
first, and it appears that your client software isn't doing that.

Which client software are you using?  Do you already have Kerberos
credentials for 'dadams' before you try to connect to the server?

If you're not looking to be using Kerberos, then I suggest turning off
the gssftp service and using vsftpd instead.
