Trying to get local FTP IIS Manager Authentication to work but with no progress - getting :
530 User cannot log in.
Eventually tried a local windows account and was able to log-in so firewall etc. must be fine. Rechecked every IIS.net website page on FTP but everything looked correct.
Finally looked at the installation of FTP as this install was done through the new Web Platform Installer and there was the problem. By default the Installer had added FTP support, but had not installed FTP Extensibility which is required for IIS Manager Authentication - would have been so nice if the IIS console had not allowed access to the IIS Manager Authentication if this was not installed.......
