IIS Version 7

I have installed IIS on a windows 7 pro machine

I have added an FTP site using the wizard
I have added a virtual directory
When I use the following url: ftp://localhost/transfer
I get the login box for username and password

nothing works - the login is not accepted for any entered details
FTP Authentication is set to Anonymous (enabled) and basic (enabled)
FTP Authorization rules set to user TickTockIT (read and write)

can someone please tell me what I am missing here

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
