FTP access problem

By tobs ·
I created an FTP site in a Windows 2000 Domain Controller. I set the Security Account to allow anonymous connections. I also have a Web site running on the same computer. In our Intranet, I can connect to the FTP site. No problem.
Over the internet, when I connect to the FTP site, a Login As Dialog box appears asking me to enter a username and password. When I enter a valid username and password, I get the message my username or password is not valid.
Why is it still prompting me for a username and password when I already configured it to Allow Anonymous connections?
By the way, I am using the Symantec Raptor Firewall and I already mapped a public IP address to the private IP address of my Domain Controller/FTP Server. I can access our web page over the Internet.I also configured the firewall to allow FTP services.
Please help.

Make sure you assigned the same privileges for local and external connections.

You need to use the format domain/username or for the login name. This is because the username you are logged into the local computer with is not in the same domain as the FTP server, so you need to tell the FTP server where the username exists. If you are using anonymous login use the username "anonymous" and password of email address.
