Hi,

I am hosting the default FTP site on an IIS Server on Windows 2003. I have set up a "Security Account" and I do not have the "Allow only anonymous connections" checkbox checked..

Now,when  I try to ftp to the server it errors out with the following error message

C:\>ftp gbi-test
Connected to gbi-test.
220-Microsoft FTP Service
220 Praveen Durbha's FTP Site
User (gbi-test:(none)): gbitest
331 Password required for gbitest.
Password:
530 User gbitest cannot log in.
Login failed.
ftp>

The server is part of a workgroup and not a domain...is that a requirement? Also, I am able to ping the server, so its visible

What am I missing here? I am sure I am..

Thanks

Whatever user you are using to login to the FTP with needs credentials associated with that machine. So in this case, user: gbitest needs to have all the proper permissions to access the default FTP folder, as well as be included in the permissions to access the FTP by itself.

Verify two things. Under IIS, right click on FTP Sites and go to properties. Under the Directory Security tab, make sure that all computers will be "granted access". Also, check the properties of the C:\Inetpub\ftproot and make sure that people have been granted access under the Security Tab.
