Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've setup a FTP server in IIS 7.5 on Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard and enabled Basic Authentication. I have a basic user ("Ropstah") on the server which is in the Users and Some Custom groups. I've allowed the Some Custom group read/write access on the FTP folder.

Now when I connect to the server using "Ropstah" I get the following error:

530 User cannot login

Why is this? (I am able to login to the FTP using the administrator account though...)

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Where have you configured this? Setting it in the IIS FTP settings is only one step. You also need to give that group appropriate permissions on the NTFS ACLs for the FTP directory(ies) on the server. You'll probably want to give Modify in most cases.

I've added the user group to the folder through windows explorer... –  Ropstah Jun 19 '12 at 22:53
    
I even tried adding "Full Control" for the specified user group, however still it doesn't work... –  Ropstah Jun 19 '12 at 22:58
    
Have you also added that group in the FTP Authorization settings in IIS? –  MDMarra Jun 19 '12 at 23:00
    
Yes... Please see the attached screenshots. –  Ropstah Jun 19 '12 at 23:05
    
And you've removed anonymous access from the FTP console, leaving only basic? –  MDMarra Jun 19 '12 at 23:17
