I have been trying to create an FTP server on my new Server 2008.
I have been following both (very detailed and highly published here guides)
For setting up using IIS Manager http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/321/configure-ftp-with-iis-7-manager-authentication/
For anonymous FTP http://www.trainsignaltraining.com/windows-server-2008-ftp-iis7
I am able to log as an anonymous user. My need is to use a named user, so I need to use the IIS Manager.
I get error 530 when trying to log as a user.
Connected to 127.0.0.1. 220 Microsoft FTP Service User (127.0.0.1:(none)): ftpmanager 331 Password required for ftpmanager. Password: 530-User cannot log in. Win32 error: Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password. Error details: Filename: Error: 530 End Login failed. ftp>
I can not learn from this message anything.
My password is set to: 1234 (so I don't think I make a mistake here - testing purposes only ofc)
Note - I went over other posts on SE that I read, and couldn't get the result:
- IIS7 Windows Server 2008 FTP -> Response: 530 User cannot log in.
- FTP Error 530, User cannot log in, home directory inaccessible.
- Having trouble setting up FTP server on Windows Server 2008
EDIT I think I found some errors with the physical path. Going to Basic settings, and Test Connection on the physical path, gave me the following error:
The server is configured to use pass-through authentication with a built-in account to access the specified physical path. However, IIS Manager cannot verify whether the built-in account has access. Make sure that the application pool identity has Read access to the physical path. If this server is joined to a domain, and the application pool identity is NetworkService or LocalSystem, verify that \$ has Read access to the physical path. Then test these settings again.
I am not sure which/whom should get access to the Root folder !?
I want to point out, I managed to login with a domain user (change authorization and authentication methods) but this is NOT the requested solution. I checked to make sure that the FTP, folders, access is working properly.
I am bit lost here.
==== More tries: I have enabled another Allow rule for ALL Users. I still get the same error. It seems that it doesn't matter if i use a correct or wrong password, I still get Error 530.
