Hello Everyone,


I'm trying to set up FTP access to my server and am stuck. I can get my client to connect to the server, but then it asks for the SSH password. It won't accept the user name and password I usually use for accessing the server using AFP or SMB. Any suggestions?

    You mentioned that you acces FTP then it asks for SSH password? Are we talking about standard FTP (port 21) or SFTP (port 22)?


    If standard FTP it could be this:

    In Server Admin, on the left side click on the server.

    Go to Access tab and see if access to FTP is restricted.
