IIS 5.0 and FTP on Win2k Pro

By Eilonwy ·
I have installed IIS 5.0 on Win2K professional. I want my computer to be an FTP server. I want anonymous and/or guest users to read only from ftproot directory. I also want to be able to log in as administrator and have read/write control of other folders on hard drive. The problem I keep running into is that once I set up ftproot, anonymous/guest can read anything I add to the "Default FTP Site" including other folders on hard drive. I am very new to this. I dont want to buy any 3rd party. Canthis be done?

Ok do these step:

1) Make sure that the partition is NTFS not FAT or FAT32 (Right click properties any partition).

Then assign NTFS security permissions to folders for users you want access to.

2) If the partition is not NTFS then convert it using CONVERT command at command prompt. eg:
convert d: /fs:ntfs /v

If the partition is System or Boot partition then restart your system for it to convert to ntfs during boot.

Thank you. Once I figured out how all the permissions work, not only from the NTFS part but also within the FTP server Properties, I was much better off. I added the administrator to the selected folders and then removed Everyone. This seemed to give me the desired results.

The best way to do this is to create a virtual folder in the ftp root directory and give it the same name as your username. Set the permissions to give yourself full access and remove all other accounts.
For example. if you were to specify E:\FTPHOME as your home directory, and had FTP user named Jerry, Gerald and Anonymous, simple create the following directories: E:\FTPHOME\JERRY, E:\FTPHOME\GERALD, and E:\FTPHOME\ANONYMOUS.

Users now FTPing into your server will automatically be placed in their own home directory. If you FTP into your server, you can confirm this by using the FTP command, "pwd", which displays your present working directory.

If the home directory is present on an NTFS partition, you may wish to assign "NO ACCESS" to the root of the home directory for all FTP users, "EXECUTE" to the home directory for all FTP users and full control to the FTP users home directory. This will prevent FTP users from accessing directories besides their own.
