Mounting FTP server as /backup

I want to be able to mount an ftp account to a local folder, I have set up a ftp server that is working fine, I have tested it with a few windows ftp clients and it works fine.

I am trying to use CurlFtpFS to mount it to /backup as I know it is supported but am running into an error I cant get around.

I have tested that my box can access the server using the ftp command, see below

root@Fileserver:/# ftp
Connected to
220 (vsFTPd 2.0.6)
Name ( ftpuser
331 Please specify the password.
230 Login successful.
Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.
ftp> exit
221 Goodbye.
but when I try to use CurlFtpFS I get a Error connecting to ftp: Access denied: 530" error, see below

root@Fileserver:/# curlftpfs
Error connecting to ftp: Access denied: 530
root@Fileserver:/# curlftpfs ftpuser:ftpPa$$w0rd@ /backup
Error connecting to ftp: Access denied: 530
I have looked this up but not have found anything useful, can anyone help??

You can't. Instead, you're supposed to use the Report button and ask for your thread to be moved.

This thread is now closed, as it's a dupe.
