    Okay thanks got the Deamon to run. Now users cannot log onto the FTP. I am sure it is in the Config file just not sure were. I checked the firewall and made sure port 21 was open on the Router. Users get FTP folder error when they try to access the FTP site.

    They get "Windows cannot access this folder. Make sure you typed the file name correctly and that you have permission to access the folder. Then it says in details the connection to the server was reset. A logn screen should come up as I turned annonomous off and set yes to cage every user in his home directory

    Hi, postcd.
    This thread is several years old, so I'm locking it down.
    I would advise posting your question in a new thread. Make sure to include as much information as possible.
