Hi,

As far as I know...there is only one solution...its because how cPanel authenticates FTP.

You can accomplish this using the following steps,

1. Assign a dedicated IP to the domain

2. Set the FTP host as the particular domain (or *.domain pointing to that IP ) or the dedicated IP in your FTP client.

Now you can access the additional user just as user rather than [email protected]

Thank you,
Nibin.

As far as I know my domain has a dedicated IP already assigned to it, also have a wildcard pointing to my dedicated IP as well.

but I am not sure as to what you mean after that.


in my zone file i have

A *.domain -> IP

the IP is only being used by my web server where the FTP folders are hosted.

so ftp.domain points to the same IP that *.domain points to.

As previously noted, if you have a dedicated IP on the account, you can use the following to access just by that username:

Code:
Host: domain.com OR dedicatedIP#
Username: username (without @domain.com)
Password: username's password
Here domain.com would be the domain name of the account with the dedicated IP or dedicatedIP# would be the dedicated IP.

I just tested this on two created accounts on an account I have on a dedicated IP. It works just fine. It simply requires that the account has a dedicated IP. The users I created were [email protected] and [email protected] where I used:

Code:
Host: daniellewallace.com for the first test, 208.74.124.112 for the second test
Username: admin for the first test, cpfoo2 for the second test
Password: the password for the created user account
If this isn't working for you, then I suggest trying it in FileZilla if you aren't using that FTP client. You can download a copy of that free client at this location:
