Good day to all.

I am trying to get FileZilla Server running on my Acer H340 WHS v1 box but am running into problems. I am hoping that some kind soul can tell me what I've missed doing.

I followed two different step-by-step installation tutorials: the best of the two is from Computing On Demand at http://computingonde...-server-on-whs/ , the other is from Tested.com at http://www.tested.co...ome-server/403/

Although both tutorials are quite similar, there are small differences. I've tried both ways.

What I see on my WHS box when trying to initiate a FTP transfer is:

Using a different FTP client gives me:

Both of these lead me to believe that this is NOT a port-forwarding or firewall issue at the WHS box because the FileZilla server is seeing all of the communications from the client and vice-versa. Rather, I think that I somehow messed up the settings within FileZilla.

What I've done:

Created a directory right off the root of C drive called FTPusers (C:\FTPusers)
Told FileZilla to use Port 21 and 50000 - 50100 and to use my homeserver.com address (passive mode)

Set up a group called Admin and, under Group Shared Folders, set up my home directory as C:\FTPusers, added a couple of shared folders (one is \\DW0\Music, the other is D:\shares\Public).

For the shared folder aliases, I tried several different techniques. For the test where I had renamed my home directory to C:\FTPusers\:u , I used /Music and /Public. For the test where I omitted the "/:u" (C:\FTPusers), I tried C:\FTPusers\Music

Finally, I added a user (Dwayne) to the Users settings and told FileZilla to include that user in the Admin group (selected from the drop-down box).

What I see when I go looking at the C:FTPusers directory is that FileZilla created a child directory called Dwayne - but the Dwayne directory is empty.

I'm positive that I've made some silly mistake but I just can't see it. I'm hoping that someone can point me in the right direction.

Many thanks!
