IIS 6 FTP server won't accept AD domain account logins
Posted on 2005-04-23
I've got a problem setting up an FTP server on IIS6. I have a dedicated webserver which is part of a domain (it's being run as an application server only). My web site is set up and working fine. However, I cannot get the FTP server set up so that only certain domain users can login.
What happens is that no matter how I have it set up, it asks for a user name and password, and will not accept the admin accounts I enter. It will not accept any domain accounts. It will accept anonymous logins if I check that option in the FTP properties, but still will not accept domain account logins. I've tried all the admin accounts, and I've made sure that the folder permissions indicate that these users have full control.
I've quadruple checked the permissions, and I do *not* have the "accept only anonymous logins" function checked for this.
I have another web server with this same setup, and it works fine. I've tried to make the settings identical, but still no-go. I'm obviously missing something. Something that's probably obvious. :)
Any help with this is appreciated; I'd like to take the server live soon, and without FTP access to the website, I can't do it yet.
