I just installed the IIS FTP server on my machine and selected to use anonymous autentication, it didn't ask any password to use but when open in the browser ftp://localhost it does request an username and password. Which one should I use? I tried leave the anonymous username with password anonymous@localhost or leave password field empty but either way it return the error:

530-User cannot log in. Win32 error: Error details: An error occurred during the authentication process. 530 End

I tried to set an login by ISS > sites > default FTP > FTP authentication > anonymous authentication > fill with foo username and baa password, tried to login and received same error.

What's the proper username to the FTP?

  • Did you ever fix this? I have the same error. – A G Mar 12 '16 at 23:58
  • sorry, I don't remeber what I did at time.. but I think I ended up using something else than IIS... – Jack Mar 13 '16 at 1:56
