QnE works great if the user ID home directory is located locally.. C:\ but
I need a user ID and it's home drive / Aliases to be on another server
\\myserver\sharedrive\uploads... I fail to log in. Change the home drive to local drive.. works

If I map the drive via W2K say, G:\ it still will not work

I get
550 "": Directory or file not found.
! DoDirList failed 0

NO firewalls invalved... basic network. Again, it works great to a local drive, but when setting to another server dirctory.. shared drive, mapped drive it won't work...
Remote server directory security is set to EVERYONE Full Access btw.

thx

Mapped drives should work fine. Unless you don't have access to the drive. If you're using the service version make sure you also give the local system account access rights.

Hey,

I have the same Problem. FTP runs at a Service and everything is fine.

I had created 2 virtual directories on a other server. But the directories are not shown in the FTP Dir.

The Virtual directory is like

\\server2\d\inetpub\wwwroot\folder1

What permision have I to set for the FTP Service? Rolling Eyes

Services do not run under your normal user account. They will run even if your not logged on to your system. So they do not have access to all your drive mapping, because these are only valid for your user account.
By default the FTP Service runs under the Local System account.

If you having trouble to access network drives you'll need to specify a user account which does have access to these remote drives. And enter this account info in the Service Manager Properties.
