    Multiple FTPsites


    by russellrl2 ·

    I have a main ftpsite that is public in nature. Some individuals want a private ftpsite for moving sensitve data. I have read where you can setup multiple ftpsites using different port numbers. I established 2 additional ftpsites and gave them port numbers of 5033 and 5036. But when I ftp to them (ftp:\****.******.***:5036) it gives me the login and password window but does not accept it. Using a ftp programs does the same (530 error). It is important the folder cannot be accessed by the public ftp users.

      Secure FTP Sites

      I’m doing this off-the-cuff since I’m not in front of my servers, but here are the basics of what I have done this in the past with good results.

      A single FTP site is sufficient.

      The home directory of your FTP site would point to c:\inetpub\ftproot. Under ftproot you create folders that correspond to local users of the host server (the user accounts must be local, and not on a domain).

      FTP automatically directs logged on users to a first-level folder that matches the user id. For example: would be automatically directed into c:\inetpub\ftproot\user1 on the host server.

      From there, just use basic NTFS permissions to lock down the folders.

      Hope this helps.
