IIS FTP issue

By Tejota ·
I'm running NT 4.0/spk 6 with IIS. I have one external IP address bound to the internal address of the server through NAT. This external IP address is our FTP address that is used for company A who drops files overnight into their default directory on FTProot. Can I create another directory and have company B login and automatically be dropped into their own directory? I haven't been able to set it up where a second company can login and automatically be placed in their home folder. Is UNIX the only OS that does this for FTPing?

You can do this with IIS. When you create the user in User Manager, go in to the profiles section and define a home directory under 'home directory'/'local path'. Assign it to <default ftproot path>\%username% This will create the users folder and they will be dropped into it upon logon. Permissions to the other folder are set using standard NT folder and file permissions.

Hope this helps.

I haven't tried it but I am certain answer #one will not work for you. Since this is an ftp connection and not a domain login you won't get the same results. Everyone logging on to your ftp site will be placed in the ROOT directory defined on yourftp server.
Try creating a virtual directory on your FTP server. Assign NTFS rights to this directory only to company B. For additional security you can assign a DENY right to company A for this directory.
When company b connects to your ftp server they will have to execute the chdir "virtual dir" command to get to their ftp site.

You could try to do this:
1)Create a folder with the same name of
company B in the FTProot and set appropiate
permission.
2)Create a virtual directory for company B in IIS and point to the folder created in 1)
3)Give the user of company B logon locally right.
Hope this might help you.

Yes you can.
1.Login as Administrator on your FTP Server.
2. Goto the User Manager
3. Click properties for existing FTP User.
4. In home dir, type the name of the folder of your FTP Site, eg.
For User1 C:\FTP\User1
5. Now open Windows Exlorer, in properties for User1 folder, right click it and in Security, assign it to User1 & Administrator.
6. Create another user say User2.
7. Make his home folder as C:\FTP\USER2 folder & create a folder in C:\FTP as User2 & assign it secutity rightsto User2 & admin.
Thats all.
Now when User1 logs in, he'll goto folder C:\FTP\User1 AND
when User2 logs in, he'll goto C:\FTP\User2.
Simple !!
