Its fixed now, it seems to be it was a easy fix and I was kind of waisting
your time, but thanks for the answers. I did google it and couldn't get a

Currently this server is setup for back-up the our other 3 servers and
people can get FTP for backing-up there site. I prefer FTP because people
*know* FTP, when I give them something different to use there is a change
they are scared and will not use it.
