I am trying to connect by FTP to an Azure Web App. I downloaded the publish profile and copied the login to my FTP client and can connect successfully. But when i use
ftp.exe from Windows then i am not able to connect to the same host with the same credentials.
I have read Connecting to Azure website via FTP but those solutions do not fix my problem.
This is the output:
ftp> open waws-prod-am2-201.ftp.azurewebsites.windows.net
Connected to waws-prod-am2-201.drip.azurewebsites.windows.net.
220 Microsoft FTP
Service 200 OPTS UTF8 command successful - UTF8 encoding now ON.
User (waws-prod-am2-201.drip.azurewebsites.windows.net:(none)): firstserver\$firstserver
331 Password required
530 User cannot log in.
Also tried with username
firstserver from the Windows command prompt, no difference. Do not forget: when logging in via commercial FTP client software I CAN login successfully.
I tried backslashing the backslash and/or the dollar sign, but nothing helps. What is going wrong, how do i login from the command prompt using the Windows default
