Anonymous FTP login to Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit) with the FTP server running.  I ~think~ I have everything configured correctly for anonymous access, but my ftp sessions look like this:

    C:\Users\user1>ftp user1-pc
    Connected to user1-pc.
    220 Microsoft FTP Service
    User (user1-PC:(none)): anonymous
    331 Anonymous access allowed, send identity (e-mail name) as password.
    230 User logged in.
    ftp> dir
    530 Please login with USER and PASS.
    530 Please login with USER and PASS.

    It looks like I've been logged in (the anonymous and password are accepted) but then I am told to login with user and pass again and I cannot list the directory contents or PUT anything to the server.

    The ftp folder in question has been set to give everyone and anonymous login full control.

  • Did you ever find a solution for what you described in this thread.  I have the exact same issue and can't figure this out.

    Thanks for any help.

  • I just got this to work. I made a few changes trying to figure it out, but the key was finding out that ftp anonymous authentication uses the IUSR to access the files on the system. Once I gave IUSR access to the folder i was sharing via ftp, everything worked.


    One thing to note is that i did at one point enable the "Let everyone permissions apply to anonymous user" security policy, but once i set the IUSR permission i flipped it back off and it didn't change the functionality.
