Windows Server 2003 Local User and FTP

My agency is in the middle of upgrading/migrating our internet and intranet servers.

I've migrated the users from the old IIS machine to the new one.

I've allowed local logon to the correct accounts

I've duplicated the permissions exactly to the letter on the new server.

When I attempt to log on to the FTP server with one of the local accounts, I keep getting denied... one account keeps getting locked out.

However, if I log on with a DOMAIN\username account, I get right in.


WHAT is causing this and how do I get rid of it?

The local user accounts are for people outside of our agency that need to provide us with mission critical data.  I can't switch to the new server until this is done!

What was your OLD server?  Apparently it wasn't running Active Directory, which your new one is.  Is the new server a domain controller?  If so, there are no local accounts.

The old server, like the new one, is not running AD. The new server is not a domain controller.  I can log onto it with the local accounts with no problems.  I just cannot log onto it via FTP with a local account.

Attempting to ftp on the new server using WS_FTP Pro.

Currently, when I leave one of the local accounts in the login information, I get a message that the server rejected my login credentials.
If I change it to my own domain userid and password, everything works fine.

Rather than give you two or three things to keep checking, how about you review this article to see if you've set things up right:  http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/Creating-Configuring-FTP.html  It's pretty comprehensive!
