    FTP Newbie, Error 530, cannot connect to home directory

    Hi guys.

    I've been tasked with setting up an FTP directory for a client of ours. I'm new to the whole server area so I'm fairly unfamiliar with how to do this.

    I'm working from a Windows 2008 Server with IIS 7 installed.

    To create the FTP user directory I've followed a tutorial on ehow - how to set up ftp site.

    The FTP site is already set up on IIS 7 so I was able to skip that bit. I followed the rest exactly however when I try to connect via FileZilla, I get the following errors:

    Status: Connecting to xxx.xx.xx.xx:21...
    Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
    Response: 220 Microsoft FTP Service Command: USER userFTP Response: 331 Password required for userFTP.
    Command: PASS **
    Response: 530 User cannot log in, home directory inaccessible. Error: Critical error Error:
    Could not connect to server
    I've double checked the permissions of the user also and everything appears to be as it should. If anyone has any advice, I'd be so grateful.
