I have a (clean) server running Windows Server 2008 R2 standard. I would just like to use it for serving a website and a FTP server through IIS. IIS is installed and serves my website propery. I have now added a FTP site but when I try to logon using my user/pass i get the following error:
530 User cannot login
From this article (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/200475) I understand that these four causes can be pointed out:
- The Allow only anonymous connections security setting has been turned on in the Microsoft Management Console (MMC). Not the case
- The username does not have the Log on locally permission in User Manager. The user is in the
Usersgroup, however I'm not able to logon through RDP. I tried configuring this by following this article through
GPMChowever this only works when I'm logged in as a domain user on a domain controller which I'm not: I'm logged in as
- The username does not have the Access this computer from the network permission in User Manager. Not sure what this implies...?
- The Domain Name was not specified together with the username (in the form of DOMAIN\username). Tried adding the server name:
server\username, not working...
I am an absolute server noob and I'd just like to be able to connect through FTP... Any guidance is highly appreciated!
