FTP Server 2003 Error

Hi all,

I have an issue with my FTP server running a on stand-alone windows 2003 server, i have RRAS NAT - basic firewall setup and the server sits behind two routers (192.168.2.1) and (192.168.3.1), i forwarded port 21 for both routers and my internet NAT interface. I set the NTFS permissions for my current testing user account. When i test it on a windwos xp SP2 IE browser(ftp://"ftpserverip") i get prompted for a Login and Password, i authenticate fine but it times out with error:

" FTP Folder Error: An error has occured opening that folder on the FTP server.Make sure you have permission to access that folder".
I also tried connecting using a FTP client (SmartFTP), it autnenticates fine, but it times out then it disconnects.

Any ideas ?

You need to assign the 'allow logon locally' right to the account your using to connect to the FTP server. You also need to check that the NTFS permissions in the folder your presenting over FTP allow the user at least read access.

Thanks for your quick respone. The user has " allow logon locally" rights and more than read access permissions, but the problem still presists.

Any other suggestions ?

If you set allow logon locally on the local machine policy and you also have a domain policy, you might find that the domain policy has overridden the local setting.

I am assuming here that the machine is part of an active directory domain - if not then it's something else.

The system is a stand-alone server, its not part of any domain.

If you set the FTP root to be a share, rather than a local drive and path, there might be share permissions stopping you from connecting.

If you have configured the permissions correctly and allowed local logon, then I am all out of suggestions :(
