I've recently setup an FTP server internally.  I have a shared folder also setup and this is the FTP home directly.  I'm allowing two AD users I setup to have Read, Write, & Execute rights on this home directory folder.  My issue is that I can't seem to login to the FTP site from my web browser using either set of user credentials I have setup in AD.  Under the Security Accounts tab for my FTP site, I do not have Allow Anonymous Connections checked.  I can logon to my network using these AD accounts so I know they work...any help out there?

are you using the Default FTP site or have you created your own?  Because if the Default is still running and you've created your own, you must STOP it in order to free port 21.  otherwise, what is the error you get and have you checked the event viewer?

I give this user the points because his answer was right.  I do take some pride myself though in that I did figure this out yesterday but neglected to come back out here and update my question.  thanks though.
