ftp to a windows machine from SCO unix

I have done things many times before but this time I am stuck.  I am trying to ftp a file from a SCO Unix 5.0.7 system to a windows machine.  I get the following error:


# ftp -d secure.mpp.com
Connected to secure.mpp.com.
220 Microsoft FTP Service
---> AUTH KERBEROS_V5
504 Security mechanism not implemented.
Kerberos V5: rejected as an authentication type
Name (secure.mpp.com:root): mpp\vdr-tstvdr
---> USER mpp\vdr-tstvdr
331 Password required for mpp\vdr-tstvdr.
Password:
---> PASS XXXX
530 User cannot log in, home directory inaccessible.
Login failed.
---> SYST
215 Windows_NT
Remote system type is Windows_NT.
---> TYPE A
200 Type set to A.
Using ascii mode to transfer files.
ftp>


It happens whether I use the machine name or the ip address.

Server-side error... your client connected but failed authentication because:

530 User cannot log in, home directory inaccessible.


The FTP administrator on the windows side will need to fix access to the home directory.

... Also the FTP client is trying, and failing, to start an FTPS session.  That probably doesn't matter to the ultimate resolution but it is curious.
