I have built a new Windows 2008R2 server and configured a couple of FTP sites.  My domain users can login without problem but I will need to grant access to a few people who are not part of my company to connect to the FTP sites to download some files.  I believe I have to create a local user on the server and grant them permission to the FTP site, which I have done.  However when I try and connect to the FTP site via my FTP clent as the local user I get the following error:

530 User cannot log in.

I'm not sure what I've not done or done wrong?

Also, depending on your setup, they may need to give their username as:

ftp.example.com|UserName

(That is the server name, as the server knows it, and then a pipe character, and then the user name)

Hi thanks for your replies.  My problem was that  under Basic Authentication the default domain entry was set to my companies Domain, once I removed the entry and left the default domain field blank I was then able to login with either a local or Domain account.
