FTP login error 451

I have created a new ftp user in AD. I have a tab that allows me to modify UNIX settings, which I've used before to create FTP users for our Linux FTP server. I am getting the following error, which I've never seen before and cannot find much info in except for email. but this is not an email issue, it's an FTP issue. Any help will be appreciated.

451 Login failed, can't set startup dir to your home directory: No such file or directory.

Thanks for your input, but the problem turned out to be a communications issue. When I took over FTP services I was told we had specific ftp urls for specific customers and servers... Except for this customer which has their own ftp service and url. Gotta love that...
