I'm setting up a virtual directory in MSFTP (IIS 6.0) to point to a remote share in a DMZ. The ftp server itself is in a separate DMZ and both the firewalls have NetBIOS open for communication between these 2 machines.
I can access the remote share using the UNC path, I can create the virtual directory with a "Connect As" account that has appropriate permissions on the network share and server.
The problem lies with IIS as it says "Access Denied" when I connect to FTP and change the directory to the Virtual Directory. There are events as below on the ftp server.
The server was unable to add the virtual root '/VirtualDirectoryName' for the directory '\\RemoteServer\Share' due to the following error: Access is denied. The data is the error code.
