  1. ive done this and rebooted ive even added a user ftp with the password ftp under control panel user accounts
    I still get this when using ftp and I can ping ok
    FTP looks like works only using Anonymous Authentication but not with Authentication. I have tried to enabled FTP authentication and ftp stop working.
    Good Morning Shawm,
    Is not fix yet. I believed you will be having this issue when you are using LDAP Authentication enabled.
    After enabling LDAP Authentication FTP works with Anonymous authentication not with user authentication.
    File Share stop working with or without authentication, when you access the Panel View IP address in windows machine it will asked for authentication even File Share is setup for not to authenticate and even you enable file share authentication and create and account in Panel View, account will not be accepted.
    I'm not sure if this is related to this article.
