IIS5 ftp permissions

Ok, here's the beef.

     I have 1 Win2000 box running Active Directory and IIS5, with multiple web and ftp sites. I setup a FTP site for a friend. This FTP site will only allow a user under the administration group to login, but no one else. I have made an acct for my friend in Actice Directory and added him to the folder permissions for the FTP site. I have also disabled anonymouse access. Everything works perfect, just that he cannot login to his ftp site.

     I checked the LOG files, and found

14:29:55 68.16.171.70 [794]USER jamesd 331
14:29:55 68.16.171.70 [794]PASS - 530

331 = User name okay, need password.
530 = Not logged in.

microsoft's ftp server is not as smart as www (for a lot of reasons, many technical) so it is not as good at locating domain users as the web security.

try entering the username in some varieties of domain/username, like domain.com/username or NT_DOM/username etc.

cheers.

meverest,

     I have tried to add the domain to the login but that did not work either.

     When i login to this FTP site with the admin account, it works and i dont need to use the domain.

    I think it may have something to do with the domain policies, but i am not sure :) I have tried setting the 'Log on localy' and 'access from network' options, but this seem to do nothing in my situation.

Thanks for the quick reply meverest.

ok, another common mistake is that the user needs 'log on locally' rights at the ftp server.

<gee> sorry - i didn't read your response properly :-}

i guess the only thing left is just to make sure that he has rights (at least read) to the ftp root.

cheers.
