W2K Server FTP Issue

Hello,

I have a W2K server running FTP.  We are having a problem where a username we deleted can still access the ftp server and read/write to the directory.

The username is client, we deleted the client username - didn't work, we also discovered that if we leave the client password blank when logging into the ftp site it still allows it to login.  Allow Annoynomous connection is turned off.  We tried recreating the username and disabling it, didn't work, we also tried a different password from the original, still didn't work.  

If we try to use a random username to login to our FTP site, it doesn't work, so there definately seems to be something with the client username.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried to restart the FTP service?

Yes, it turns out I just had to wait until the usernames propagated.

You may find that a stand alone FTP program is easier to manage and has better security (you don't have to allow every user account FTP access). I prefer Filezilla Server over IIS.
