that. There's almost nothing to enter in the Emerald Admin for FTP. We
have the following and everything works fine:

enter in whatever the path needs to be (\\server\users\username) or
whatever. I don't know if it's been fixed in 2.5.327, but Emerald 2.5.322
(and some previous versions) will only create the directory on the server

service and saved, the directory is not created on the server for some
