    Do you have multiple FTP sites configured or just one? Is there any additional information related to the failure in the FTP logs?

    Try setting host header in the site bindings and then log in using the <hostheader>|<username> formate in order for iis to pick up which site to log in.

    In addition, you can refer the document

    Hope it can help you.
