How do I get my FTP server to use domain user accounts without having to enter the domain before the username.  For example, currently when I logon onto my FTP server I have to type "MyDomain\JoeUser" and then the password.  I would like to just have to type "JoeUser," without having to add the domain.  I have made sure the Domain Users are included in the "Log on Locally" of the local security policy, I have also removed Anonymous authentication from the site and set Authenticated Users into the operators.  But, still nothing.  Am I missing something?

Is the server a member of the domain you want to validate against or in a seperate workgroup/domain?

I found the solution...  It's something obscure and ridiculous, considering I never keep the InetPub folder and all those example scripts on my machines.  Apparently this issue is addressed more appropriately in IIS 6.0.
