I have a client that decided to use Anonymous FTP. However, when he put the files in the public_ftp folder, they did not show up in anonymous FTP. I have set the shared IP to 64.xxx.xxx.74, but however, WHM didn't like creating accounts under that IP to share with other accounts, only the main server IP.

Now, a client on the shared IP, 64.xxx.xxx..74, wants anonymous FTP access. I have taken a look into his account - when you connect to Anonymous FTP, this is shown:

Connected to (ftp.drone-alliance.org) -& IP: 64.xxx.xxx.70 PORT: 21.
Socket connected waiting for login sequence.
220-=(&*&)=-.:. (( Welcome to PureFTPd 1.0.12 )) .:.-=(&*&)=-
220-You are user number 1 of 50 allowed.
220-Local time is now 22:23 and the load is 0.24. Server port: 21.

Now, the IP shown is the main server IP, and as a result, there is absolutely nothing there. Since I use pureftpd, I took a look in /etc/pure-ftpd. There, I saw directories for each of the IPs. There was nothing in any of them, except for the incoming directory.

I'm puzzled at this. Any ideas on how to fix this?
