While I'm able to login via SCP (SSH) to the server, attempting to login into the server's proftpd service fails. Its a FREENAS server. Server logs say 'chdir("/mnt/myusername"): No such file or directory. Clientside, the WINSCP log gives '530 Login incorrect.' as the error. I'm using passive mode since that's default.
Now, if I try to login via puttyFTP, it works fine & the remote directory is '/'. I'm a member of the wheel group on the server, so this isn't a problem.
For some reason, it seems like WINSCP is appending my username to the default '/mnt' path configured in proftp in FREENAS server. Is there someway to turn off this appending of the username.
I've not absolutely no luck in resolving this via many google searches and am quite surprised. That is the only reason I've resorted to creating a new post. I'm stumpted. Any help would be incredibly appreciated.
