I am running IIS 7.5 on Windows Server 2008 R2 64bit. I want to setup an ftp site for a specific domain. (ftp.mydomain.com)
Basic authentication is enabled.
I tried adding a specific Authorization Rule with Read/Write access for the group of ftpusers, and for the user directly.
When I don't specify a host name in the binding, I am able to connect to the ftp site without problems. When I specify ftp.mydomain.com, I get an error:
530 User cannot log in, home directory inaccessible.
When connecting from the local machine I get a more detailed error :
530-User cannot log in, home directory inaccessible. Win32 error: The system cannot find the file specified. Error details: File system returned an error. 530 End
I checked using nslookup on ftp.mydomain.com, and it responds with the correct ip address. However I tested adding a website as a subdomain, I get the response "Non-existent domain". So, I'm thinking there might be a problem with the dns settings.
