FTP site working but not accessable with IE

By mradloff ·
I have a windows 2000 server that I have set up the IIS for FTP everything seems to work with a command prompt but when I try and access it with internet explorer (like and the not techie people will) I can't get in. I type in the url and a login window pops up, I type the same username and password that works fine in the command prompt and in won't let me in.
any ideas?

Having the same problem

My problem is similar. I can access the site in command prompt and internet explorer. But my co-worker, who has the same permissions and browser settings as myself, can log into the command prompt and access the files but not through internet explorer. After they log in and switch to Internet explorer view it accepts the username and password and then shows they logged in anonymously. Not sure why its different for them and not me.
