    Hi!

    We have a customer who have a dedicated IP. He reported he cannot use FTP users with @ sign, just with plain usernames. Is there a way to enable log in with usernames formated like user@domain.com even he has a dedicated IP?

    Hello :)

    FTP usernames with the "@" symbol should be accepted, regardless of whether the account is assigned a dedicated IP address. Please paste any specific error messages that occur in the following log file when the FTP login fails:

    Code:
    # /var/log/messages
    Thank you.

    Dear cPanelMichael,

    /var/log/messages:
    (I just put an empty line to separate two test result. See below...)

    On client side I see:
    I copy-pasted the password in both case so there is no chance to mistyping.

    Are there 2 usernames with the same name?

    teszt@xmeditor.hu

    and

    teszt


    the teszt will be the default cpanel username which is the default ftp user too.

    Can you confirm if the @ username has been created?

    No, the account's owner name is quite different than teszt (xmeditor in this case). The user (teszt) becomes created but in cPanel's description I see the following:

    So cPanel itself is not refers to username with @, even if it is a virtual user, not an account owner. And there is no account with username teszt.

    Is using SFTP instead an option? Filezilla will do SFTP.

    Dedicated IP or not should make no difference to FTP login as a subuser, as others have said; the user is doing something else wrong.
