I am running an IIS 6 FTP Server on a Windows Server 2003 computer (lets call it FTPPC), connected to a domain (lets call it DOMAIN).
Allow anonymous connections is off, so a user requires a domain account to connect to the ftp. The user connects to the ftp using DOMAIN\USERNAME
The root of the ftp is pointing at E:\FTP-ROOT\, and inside are 2 folders: \PATH1\ \PATH2\
There is a Virtual Directory called PATH1 pointing to a UNC share on another pc on the domain (called DOMAINPC), set to "always use the authenticated users credentials". When connected to the ftp, a user can browse to this and will see the contents successfully.
There is also a Virtual Directory called PATH2 pointing to a UNC share on a pc that is NOT CONNECTED to the domain (called NODOMAINPC).
I have created a user on NODOMAINPC called USER1, and creating the exact same username on FTPPC with an identical password on both accounts.
In the "connect as" section for the PATH2 virtual directory, I have tried multiple things with different results:
Set the username to FTPPC\USER1 - when trying to browse the virtual directory over ftp, the error is "Access is denied" Set the username to NODOMAINPC\USER1 - when trying to browse the virtual directory over ftp, the error is "Logon failure: unknown user or bad password" Set the username to USER1 - when trying to browse the virtual directory over ftp, the error is "Access is denied"
Can this be done? And if so, where am I going wrong? I can connect to the UNC path via windows, just not via ftp.
