setup a FTP account on the server

Last Modified: 2013-11-29
Hello Experts
I have a dedicated windows 2003 hosting with IIS and FTP server pre installed. I have a default ftp.hostname.com site setup already and is currently in use.
I now have a situation where I need to create a new FTP site for one of the client to connect to us and download few files.
I thought it would be easier to setup another FTP site, create a new user from the computer management and then map this user to the FTP site by right clicking on the FTP site ->  properties-> security accounts-> define the username and password and thats it?

When I try to connect from the FTP client I was not able to connect to. Please can someone advise what else would I need to do in order to enable FTP connection to this site?
