I am using Windows 2008 R2

I installed IIS and FTP.

I enabled FTP and added an FTP site and put the path for the ftp as:

   C:\Users\uid\ftp

Open in new window


From another machine I try to log in and fail:

C:\>ftp 10.14.100.2
Connected to 10.14.100.2.
220 Microsoft FTP Service
User (10.14.100.2:(none)): anonymous
331 Anonymous access allowed, send identity (e-mail name) as password.
Password:
530 User cannot log in, home directory inaccessible.
Login failed.
ftp>

Open in new window


But when I try to ftp in from the same system it fails but provides a little more information:

C:\>ftp 10.14.100.2
Connected to 10.14.100.2.
220 Microsoft FTP Service
User (10.14.100.2:(none)): anonymous
331 Anonymous access allowed, send identity (e-mail name) as password.
Password:
530-User cannot log in, home directory inaccessible.
 Win32 error:   Access is denied.
 Error details: Authorization rules denied the access.
530 End
Login failed.

ftp>
ftp> quit
221 Goodbye.
