Can't access virtual FTP directory

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate as an FTP server. I configured the server so I can access it remotely from any computer on the Internet. When I FTP it, everything goes fine. I also created a virtual FTP directory so that other users can access a different folder on the server. I configured it the same way as I did for my own, but when I try to access the server as a user, it keeps asking me for the user ID and password. Does anybody know how to fix this?

Try anonymous authentication. In IIS, Under Authentication and Authorization Information, try checking Anonymous and then see if it prompts you for your password.

Anonymous requires a password the password is an email address it really isn't checked but added to the logs, but you will get the default ftp site which you may not want.. another idea is to use host headers (bindings) to use another ftp instance .. Personally, I copped out and instead the Microsoft solution (ftp server) and  use filezillla ftp server instead.
