Active Directory and FTP

By russellrl2 ·
Have an Active Directory Windows 2003 server that we are using as our intranet site. Creating a FTP site to transfer files and need to know how to create the users. We don't want them to have domain access just local access to use the FTP site.

You will have to grant anonymous access to the domain controller to allow that, which is an incredibly bad, bad, bad idea. Purcahse a Windows 2003 Web Server for that.

If you allow anonymous access to your domain controller, you are essentially leaving the front door unlocked to your network.

If you do leave the front door of the office unlocked at night, please let me and the other peers know. Oz keeps hogging all the nice office furniture and we would like some new stuff.

Create a simple domain account with minimum rights (membership of Guest Users would be fine)
and apply NTFS rights for that account to the folder for FTP.
