FTP on II6 with NTFS permissions to home directories are in place.  ALL PORTS on Firewall are in place ALL NAT rules on firewall are in place.  This has been working fine until we installed WS_FTP to this server and ran a few modules.  Im not sure what broke bc all the FTP sites in IIS look fine.  The permissions look OK.  I have the application pool identity set with permissions to the folders.  SO unsure what happened but users get the error now when they log into port 21 FTP

yes this is a domain based server.  its is a win 2008 r2 server joined to our domain.  USes MS FTP and IIS6.  I didnt mean to confuse things with my wording of "my network" before. Attached are the folder permissions

Check the number of characters in your hostname, if it is more than 15 characters. Change the hostname to one it has less than 15 char

Check the physical path for FTP sites in IIS > Web sites > IP address > Basic settings > Physical Path.

Is there any reason why you cannot start over again.?

Remove FTP publishing from the site.
Restart IIS
Verify that the users have proper permissions to the folder you want them to use.
Add FTP publishing back to the site.
Add the user to the ftp authorization rules.

Users for FTP are created locally on the server

FTP User isolation has been configured to Isolate Users. User Name Directory (Disable global directories)

BC the one user account that sends files 3 times a day is working mgmt does not want us  creating another FTP and starting again.
