Can you help me with my FTP server?

I have set up an FTP server in my office, but I am unable to authorize it by giving a user ID and password. I have created a user ID in my AD for FTP, but it isn't working. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
It's hard to pin point the problem without log results. But it seems like a user security profile misconfiguration issue. Make sure that the username used to log in has list permissions to the root FTP site folder. The user that is logging in always needs list permissions to the folder specified in "Default FTP Site," even if the Virtual Directory is pointing to a different location. Also make sure each user has read/write permissions to their virdir.

This article will help you setup an FTP server with Active Directory.
