Logon locally to the FTP server. But I spy another issue I glossed
over. Your virtual directory is using "Connect As" to connect to the
other server, meaning the user login isn't used to reach the user's
home directories, the domain login is. Have you tried using the
domain account as the FTP account and not a local account?
