I created some text file in ftp root folder, I also blocked anonymous authorization. The problem is that every time I logged into the ftp site I also have to provide the credentials for the text file. I've checked the folder/file permissions and everything seems to be fine. The read permission, for the user that I log in, apply to folder, subfolders and files and they are inherited from parent folder. EDIT: I just tested and it works from two other PCs (W2K3) but it's not from Windows 7). Is it just coincidence?
