    Connecting Via Windows FTP Service

    hungrymatron
      I recently moved several sites that used Contribute to a new webserver (Windows 2003 running IIS 6). The server uses Windows FTP Service.

      To create a FTP account I created a Windows Account and then a Virtual FTP directory with the same name as the windows user and pointed that virtual directory at the root of the site I want to update with contribute. I gave the Windows account full control on the site root folder. I can FTP connect via Internet Explorer and the command line.

      When connecting via contribute I get an error saying

      " The directory you specified does not exist. Please make sure you entered the directory name correctly. On some servers, file/directory names are case sensitive"

      Contribute seems to be trying to change directory to a folder with the same name as the FTP virtual directory, rather than to the folder that the virtual directory points at.

      here's the error log from contribute
