To Dale and whom it may concern,

I just got my remote access working with Emerald, Yeah!!! I appreciate
your help and the posts of a few others. I had some network and SQL
security issues.

Now on to the next problem... When I set up a new user, if I enter an ftp
directory in Emerald and I use a network name like \\servername\wwwroot, it
creates the new directory with the users name. However, if I ftp to the
directory with the new user's name and password Serv-U logs me in and then
give me access denied error 550 (looks like it can't find my home
directory). On the other hand if i set up the new user with an ftp
directory with a drive letter like c:\wwwroot then Emerald gives me an
error, "68:Device Unavailable", when saving the new user (remember I am
working remotely and do not have the drive mapped). Of course this means
that home dir of the new user was not created on the server. However, if i
create the home dir on the server for the new user Serv-U authenticates via
ftp without a problem.

Does Serv-U work with a network address in the Emerald Directory field??? If
so what have i possibly configured incorrectly??
