Problems with users logging into multiple FTP sites

Hello! I am running Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition as a webserver. I currently have 2 FTP sites set up. One is set up for me to update the main web site that I host. The second is for my users to update their webpages. Here is my problem:

The FTP site that I use to update the main web site allows me to log in fine. I have it set to a static IP on the default port 21. However, the FTP site that my users use to log in does not allow anyone to log in, not even me as administrator. This one is set to the same IP, but to a different port which is port 22. The way the users FTP site works is that when they log in they have their own home directory that the FTP site takes them to. From here they should be able to upload their web content. However, whenever anyone tries to login to this FTP site, it give a 530 error - login/pass incorrect. I am stuck, I've done quite a bit of research on this and cannot figure this out. I hope that the ones out here that are certainly more knowledgeable than I am can help me.

Thanks!

One thing I'd like to add is that I have the permissions to the FTP site for the main website set to only the Administrators group. The permissions to the FTP site for the users is set to the Administrators and Users group. The users group holds all the user objects that I have created for all my users in AD.

Thanks!

One last thing is that I have set the log on locally right, but it still does not allow access.

how did you create the users ftp site?
"isolated users" with or without AD?
and you need no group for all users in AD, they are automaticaly in a Group named "Authenticated Users"

Did you set the "msIIS-FTPRoot" and "msIIS-FTPDir" properties?
The user is denied access if either the msIIS-FTPRoot or msIIS-FTPDir property do not exist, or, if these two together do not form a valid and accessible path.
you must set this with adsi edit as you can not see this object properties in ADUsers&Computers.
