you already have anonymous ftp running (from your other question...)

try logging in as a 'real' non-root user to see if that works (to confirm that it doesn't)

then, you need to find out where your pub directory is, and create a subdir called download in there

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

actually what would be great is have the go diectly to the pub directory this way they can see teh download and the upload folders

when you ftp in, type 'pwd' and see what you get....

for anon, you should be in the /var/ftp/pub directory...for a user, you'll probably be in their home directory

if not, you may have to set anon_root equal to /var/ftp/pub in the vsftpd.conf file.
