home directory inaccessible

That will be IIS 6, are you using any ftp user isolation feature?
The best way to trace this is still via filemon or procmon, this will shows where IIS is sending the user to. Don't filter the procmon first, i think you can look at where IIS is sending the user to.

In new ftp, you need to configure authorization before any access. and now it supports both Windows and IIS users, giving you more flexibility. For the folder direction, you must have add it to default web site (ftp publishing) I suggest you read the articles
here to know more about this new ftp component from MS.

when you got authorization error, check if you have authorize those user access in ftp authorization. for multiple ftp site on the same IP/port binding, look at the ftp virtual host name feature in the new IIS 7.5 release, you can read more from the link
I posted earlier...

I had same problem and i found solutin. I added AD user (e.g. "firstname.lastname@example.org"), but i didn't fill in the form domain path, I wrote only "ftpuser" and that was the reason. Every user from AD can log in to FTP server, but none has authorization on
FTP directory. So there is important correct name in Authorization. (there is not classic windows AD users dialog) :(

For anyone still looking the solution was easier than I thought it would be, but took quite awhile to find the thing.
Solution is to goto the command line and input "iisreset" for the command. Essentially, the issue is the cache in the system does not clear out unless you do the reset. Article below helped me figure that out.

@@ that's token cache, i think default ttl is 900 secs.

Mmm... I thought the form did a simple check before it accepts the value ?
